HOW MUCH FINANCIAL AID HAVE YOU BORROWED?
Keep good records of the amount of student loans that you have borrowed while attending both undergrad and grad school. Compare your records against the federal loans listed at www.nslds.ed.gov for accuracy. The servicer of the loan – the company you will work with throughout the repayment of your loan(s) – can also be found here. Familiarize yourself with this website; it will be a valuable resource throughout the repayment period of your loan(s).
Private, non-federal loans are not listed in a central location but can be accessed through the lender’s website. They will also be listed on your credit report. For a free credit report, visit www.annualcreditreport.com.
