Student Loans Application

What is the purpose of my loan?

With student loans, you have the option of deciding how much money you want to borrow and what you plan to use those funds for. You do not have to use the entire amount at once. Your loan may be repaid over a period of time, depending on your situation and repayment options that you choose.

How long until I receive my first payment?

You generally won’t start receiving payments on your student loans until after graduation — after you’ve completed your course work, taken your final exams, and received your diploma or degree.

When will interest begin accruing on my loan?

Interest begins accruing on federal student loans no later than six months after your date of enrollment. Interest will continue to accrue while your loan is outstanding, even if you stop making payments on your loan. If you leave school before completing your program, your loan balance will remain due and will accrue interest until paid off.

Do I need to pay back my loan?

Federal student loans cannot be discharged in bankruptcy unless they were obtained fraudulently. However, certain types of private student loans typically can be discharged in bankruptcy. Private student loans vary widely in terms of the type of loan and what kind of credit risk borrowers face. Borrowers should thoroughly research their loan’s specific terms and make sure they understand their rights under various scenarios.

Can I defer my payments?

Yes! Federal student loans allow you to defer your loan payments up to 12 years. After 10 years, you’re still obligated to repay your loan, but you can put off a portion of your monthly payment, known as a grace period.

When will I repay my loan?

Repayment is based on income. Income-based repayment requires that you repay 15 percent of your discretionary income each month. If you don’t meet this requirement, you’ll pay back your remaining balances over a period of 20 years (10 years for PLUS and Perkins loans). There is also a Public Service Loan Forgiveness program available for those who work in public service jobs including teachers, doctors, nurses, firefighters, etc.

Will my loan affect my credit score?

No. Your credit history won’t be impacted by paying back your student loan. In fact, having student debt could actually improve your credit rating because it shows that you have financial discipline.
