How do I repay my loans?
Repayment on most federal student loans begins 6 months after you leave college or drop below half-time enrollment. To reduce the overall amount that you will pay on your loans, we encourage you to make monthly interest payments on your loans before your repayment begins.
All federal student loans have a loan servicer that handles billing and other services. You can find your federal loan servicer information by visiting studentaid.gov. Once you have identified your servicer, visit their website to make a loan payment. For private loans, contact your lender for details about repayment. For information on federal loan repayment and repayment plans, visit studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans.
When are funds disbursed?
Typically, your financial aid will begin to disburse the aid no earlier than 10 days before classes begin. Subsequent disbursements are made weekly.
This assumes you completed all the requirements: (FAFSA on file and no further verification is needed; you are enrolled at least half time (3 credits), the award letter is accepted, Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling are completed; Annual Student Loan Acknowledgment is completed. If receiving a Graduate PLUS loan, you must complete Direct PLUS MPN and if loan is endorsed, PLUS Credit Counseling must also be completed.)
