Repaying Federal Direct Loans
Once a loan is disbursed, the government assigns your loan to a loan servicer to manage repayment. You and/or your parents can identify your specific loan servicer by logging in to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) using your FSA ID. Any specific questions you have about repayment can be referred to your loan servicer. Additional information about loan repayment is also available.
If you took out a loan before going on a mission, your loan will go into repayment. Additional information about departing missionaries is available, or you can refer to the Departing Missionary Checklist.
