The U.S. Department of Education assigns your loan(s) to one of its Loan Servicers after the entire loan amount has been disbursed — the borrower does not get to select the servicer. 

The Loan Servicer will assist you with understanding your responsibilities as a borrower and handles the billing and other services on your federal student loan. You will need to make payments directly to your servicer; each servicer has its own payment process and can work with you if you need help making payments or understanding the repayment process. 

To obtain contact information for the loan servicer, click on the “loan type”. The Loan Servicer’s contact information is listed under "Contact” in the "Make a Payment" section. You can contact the current Loan Servicer to get your latest balance. If a Loan Servicer is not listed, then contact the guarantor.  

To view your specific grant details, click on the individual grant listing. You can view the enrollment status, disbursed amount, and remaining Pell eligibility.
