Nearing the time to start paying back your student loans?
First, make sure you have copies of the disclosure statements and promissory notes for all your loans so that you know:
- The amount that you borrowed
- The name, address and phone number for your lenders or loan servicers
- The loan terms (interest rate, length of repayment, grace period, repayment options, etc.)
- An estimate of your monthly payments
This information is available from several sources including Susquehanna’s Financial Aid Office, your lenders, and the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS). NSLDS is the U.S. Department of Education’s central database for student aid.
One to two months prior to the end of the grace period, you can expect to receive statements from your lenders indicating your outstanding balance and actual monthly payments.
