National Student Loan Data System

To track your federal student loan status, you can use the National Student Loan Data System. NSLDS is the U.S. Department of Education's central database for federal student loans, and it provides borrowers with a centralized, integrated view of their federal student loans.

Deferments and Default

Deferments: As long as students are enrolled in college (at least 6 credits), they can defer loan payments. If students experience financial problems in repaying loans, they may request economic hardship forbearance. Contact Student%20Accounts for deferment forms.

Default of Loan: When a student's loan payment is past due, it goes into default. If you experience financial difficulties, contact your loan servicer to make arrangements in order to avoid default. The consequences of default are serious:

  • All delinquent loans -- overdue by more than 120 days -- are reported to the Credit Bureau.
  • Delinquent loans may be turned over to an outside collection agency or attorney.
  • Any additional costs will be the borrower's responsibility.
