Augustana students continue to have questions related to loans after graduation or leaving Augustana. The Financial Assistance Office wants to continue to be a resource for students as they transition to another school (graduate or undergraduate institution) and/or the workplace. We have created access to a number of resources we hope students utilize when questions arise regarding their loans. The listed resources may be a benefit to students as they enter repayment (and beyond) of their student loans:
NSLDS - Provides access to Exit Counseling, loan balances and servicer information
Loan Servicer Information - Lists Direct Loan Service Centers and their contact information
Repayment Options - A list of repayment options available to students
Deferment and Forbearance - Explains these options and when students may be eligible to use them
Delinquency and Default - How to avoid delinquency and default and consequences of both
Other valuable resources are found on the following sites:
Federal Student Aid
Stafford Loan Exit Counseling
These resources will be useful whether students are entering repayment or well into repayment. As always, we invite students to contact the Financial Assistance Office with questions.
Good luck with all of your future endeavors!
