Student Loan Information - Helpful Links

Understanding Default / Federal Student Aid
If you don’t make your loan payments, you risk going into default. Defaulting on your loan has serious consequences. Your school, the financial institution that made or owns your loan, your loan guarantor, and the federal government all can take action to recover the money you owe. Understand how missing a loan payment can be a problem, what default means and the consequences of default, and what you need to do if your loan is in default or if you think the default on your loan is an error.

National Student Loan Data System - Student Access
The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) is the U.S. Department of Education's (ED's) central database for student aid. NSLDS receives data from schools, guaranty agencies, the Direct Loan program, and other Department of ED programs. NSLDS Student Access provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants so that recipients of Title IV Aid can access and inquire about their Title IV loans and/or grant data.

Single Portal Entry to Debt Resolution
Information about the types of aid available; qualifications for loans and grants; how to apply for aid and managing student loans are available at the Federal Student Aid website.

Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG), Academic Competitiveness Grants, National SMART Grants, and TEACH Grants. In certain instances, you may have to repay part of a Federal grant awarded to you.

If your loan is in default or you have a grant overpayment and are not sure what type of loan or grant you have, check your original loan/grant documents or use [the] National Student Loan Data System. If the loan/grant is not one of the program types listed above and is not assigned to the U.S. Department of Education, the information on this site does not apply to you.

These links do not provide student loan debt resolution once your case has been assigned to a federal judge.
