The list below contains links that address student and parent audience looking for loan and grant information and servicing.

Student & Parent Links - Programs

  • Direct Consolidation Loans

    These programs simplify loan repayment by combining several types of Federal education loans (that may have different terms and repayment schedules or may have been made by different lenders) into one new loan. The interest rate may be lower than on one or more of the underlying loans. In addition, the monthly payment amount on a consolidation loan is usually lower and the amount of time to repay may be extended beyond what was available in the separate loan programs. These features should result in more manageable debt, and make borrowers less prone to default.

  • Direct Loans - Students

    Part of the Direct Loan website, this link provides direct access to the Student page where borrowers and parents can find Direct Loan information and publications as well as an interactive repayment calculator.

  • Federal Student Aid Ombudsman

    This link provides information regarding the Ombudsman Group. The Ombudsman Group is a final resource after individuals look for help through other customer service avenues. Before contacting the Ombudsman, borrowers concerned about student loans should contact their loan holder.

Electronic loan correspondence and links to other tools and resources can be viewed on this website.
