Borrowing student loans to pay for college costs is considered to be an investment in yourself. It comes with the responsibility to repay the loans you borrow. Check out our tips & resources for you below.
You must begin repaying your student loans 6 months after you graduate or 6 months after you are no longer enrolled in school.
If you are unable to repay your student loans, contact the Department of Education or your student loan servicer. A loan servicer is a company that collects student loan payments for the Department of Education.
