Loan Repayment

When you graduate or withdraw from the University your loans will need to be paid back. You may begin repayment immediately, or have a time period of deferment on your loans. It all depends on your circumstances. 

The university will send a notice to complete loan exit documents to your email. This is the first step in understanding your loan repayment. Below is additional information about loan repayment. You can always contact us if you need assistance. 

Loan Repayment

Federal Student Aid has provided a short video with information about what to expect when entering repayment.


To view the total amount of federal loans that you have borrowed, you can go to and log in to view the breakdown of subsidized, unsubsidized, and total loan amounts borrowed, as well as the Loan Servicer assigned. You will want to contact the servicer listed, to discuss the various repayment options offered, and select the one that is best for you.

You can also go to the Repayment Estimator on to get an idea of the various options available, and what the current and future payments would entail.
