If you receive financial aid, there are several resources that may help you track your loans and/or grants. The following lists include federal and state agencies who can help you manage your financial aid disbursements and loan debt. Some sites will require confidential information such as your Social Security Number (SSN) to allow access to your personal information. You may also need your Department of Education/FAFSA PIN.
National Student Loan Data System
The U.S. Department of Education uses several loan servicers to handle the billing and other services on loans for the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. For information on repayment of your Direct Loan, visit the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). This is the U.S. Department of Education’s central database for student aid. It receives data from schools, agencies that guaranty loans, the Direct Loan Program, and other U.S. Department of Education programs. NSLDS provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans and grants that are tracked through their entire cycle; from aid approval through closure. Refer to the NSLDS website to make inquiries about your Title IV loans and/or grants.
Student Loan Service Center
The State University of New York (SUNY) Student Loan Service Center (SLSC) has primary responsibility for servicing all of the Federal Perkins, Health Professions and Nursing Student Loans awarded at the 29 SUNY State Campuses across New York State. In addition to tracking all of the loans, the SLSC will contact each borrower regarding repayment information, after the student’s separation from their SUNY school.
Direct Loan Consolidation Information
The Direct Loan Consolidation site assists students to determine if loan consolidation is right for you.
Federal Student Aid Ombudsman
The Federal Student Aid Ombudsman of the Department of Education helps resolve disputes and solve other problems with federal student loans.
Loan Forgiveness Programs
Under certain conditions, you may qualify to have your federal student loans forgiven.
