Loan Information and Resources for F&M Graduates

Federal Direct Loans

The Office of Financial Aid does not retain loan Information for students beyond graduation.  If you are a graduate and are interested in knowing the status of your undergraduate federal student loans or who is servicing your loans, the first resource you should visit is the National Student Loan Data Systems (NSLDS) at www.nslds.ed.gov .  NSLDS is a central data base for federal student aid.  NSLDS provides a centralized, integrated view of Title IV loans (Perkins, Stafford, Direct, and PLUS loans for parents) and Pell grants that are tracked through their entire cycle. 

Once you know who your loan servicer(s) are we strongly urge you to visit their website to create a USER ID and PASSWORD giving you 24/7 access to your Federal Direct Loans.   The servicer websites contain valuable information on loan repayment and other topics of interest.

Below is the link that will provide contact information for all the loan servicers contracted by the Department of Education to service Federal Direct loans;
