IMPORTANT Information for Federal Student Loan Borrowers:
Be Prepared for Repayment
- Congress recently passed a law preventing further extensions of the payment pause. Student loan interest will resume starting on September 1, 2023, and payments will be due starting in October.
- Borrowers will be notified by their servicer well before payments restart
- This does not apply to students who are currently enrolled at least half-time, as their federal student loans will remain in deferment.
Prepare now! Borrowers can log in at studentaid.gov to find their loan servicer and create an online account with them. The servicer will handle billing, repayment options, and other tasks related to your federal student loans. Borrowers should update their contact information and monitor their loan status as the repayment pause end date gets closer.Find more information on borrower repayment here. Failure to repay federal student loans greatly impacts your credit score. Avoid delinquency and default by taking action now!
