General

Q: I have not received a bill for my student loan. What should I do?

A: Contact the Loan Collection Office to find out why you are not receiving your bills. Be advised that you are responsible for paying your loan even if you did not receive a bill.

Q: I am unable to make the schedule loan payments. What should I do?

A: Contact the Loan Collection Office for alternate repayment arrangements. You may be eligible for a loan deferment. Be advised that the Loan Collection Office will not be able to help you once your loan is assigned to a collection agency.

Q: I've been paying on my student loans but I am still receiving past due notices. What should I do?

A: Contact the Loan Collection Office to determine why your loan is past due. If you remitted a payment late, you may have been assessed a late fee which made your loan past due. Or you may have other loans that are being serviced by different billing agencies. If you overlooked one of your loans, you will receive past due notices until that loan is brought current.

Q: I am thinking of consolidating all of my student loans. Can I assume that all of my loans will qualify for loan consolidation?

A: Not all loans are eligible for loan consolidation. Be advised that State Higher Education Loans are not eligible for federal loan consolidation.
