Graduating this fall with student loans?
If you have taken any federal Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized loans while at SCAD, here is some important information about your grace period and loan repayment.
Exit counseling is required when you withdraw, graduate or drop below half-time attendance. It helps you understand your rights and responsibilities as a student loan borrower and provides useful tips and information to help you manage your loans. You may complete this requirement at www.studentloans.gov.
- What is it? When you graduate, drop below half time (10 credit hours), or withdraw from your academic program, you will receive a six-month grace period for your Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans before you begin repayment.
- When does is start? Your grace period begins the day after you stop attending school on at least a half-time basis (10 credit hours). Once your six-month grace period ends, you must begin repaying your loan(s).
- How much do I owe? Visit the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®) to view information about all of the federal student loans you have received. You can view loan amounts and interest rates.
- How much will I pay each month? You have a choice of several repayment plans that are designed to meet your needs. The amount you pay and the length of time to repay your loans will vary depending on the repayment plan you choose. Get details about repayment plans and calculate your estimated repayment amount under each of the different plans.
- To whom do I make my loan payments? A loan servicer is a company that handles the billing and other services on your federal student loan. The loan servicer will work with you on repayment plans and loan consolidation and will assist you with other tasks related to your federal student loan. It is important to maintain contact with your loan servicer. If your circumstances change at any time during your repayment period, your loan servicer will be able to help.
- Who is my loan servicer? Visit the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS®) to find contact information for the loan servicer or lender for your loans.
