Juneteenth Holiday

Our offices will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th, in observation of Juneteenth. Please note this may result in a higher-than-average call volume following the holiday. We apologize for any inconvenience. You can access account information 24 hours a day by logging into your online account.

Payment Options

There are several payment options that are available. You can pay online, sign up for auto debit, call us, and more.

Loan Forgiveness & Discharge

There are repayment plans that include loan forgiveness, and several reasons why a loan may be discharged.

  • In School

    Payments are not required while you are in school, but it is good to stay informed about your loan balance, interest accrual, and more.

  • In Grace

    After you graduate or fall below half time, your grace period of 6 months begins. Review available resources to help you get ready for repayment.

  • In Repayment

    Now that you are paying back your student loans, be informed about your payment options, interest reduction benefits, and more.

  • Parent Borrower

    Parent PLUS loans are taken out for a student, but are the parent's responsibility. Be informed about your payment options, and more.
