Websites for Federal Loan Borrowers

You can keep track of your federal loan borrowing history, how much interest has accrued on your loans to date, and find your loan servicer’s contact information on the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).

StudentAid.gov provides everything you need to know about federal aid as students and families are preparing for college and continuing through post-enrollment loan repayment.

Federal Loan Consolidation

A Direct Consolidation Loan allows the borrower to combine (their own) multiple federal education loans into one loan. Federal loan servicers do not offer consolidation of federal and private education loans together.  Learn what you need to know to determine whether or not you want to consolidate your federal loans.

Federal Loan Forgiveness

In certain situations you can have your federal student loan forgiven, canceled, or discharged, which means you are no longer expected to repay your loan. Click here for information about types of loan forgiveness, including Public Service Loan Forgiveness and Teacher loan forgiveness and loan cancellation, and find out if you qualify.
