How to make a payment

  • Automatic payments: Sign up anytime by logging into Manage Your Loan, submitting the Authorization for Automatic Payments form or contacting us to enroll. You may reduce your interest rate by 0.25% to ensure your payments are on time! Use our Repayment Calculator to see how much you can save.
    • Tip: If you can afford it, make payments while you are in college. Even if the payments are small, this may reduce the total amount you will need to pay over the life of the loan.
