Stafford Direct Loan Servicers

Beginning July 2010, the U.S. Department of Education expanded their loan servicing to additional loan servicers for Direct Loan.  Direct Loan did not sell your loans; they just employ additional loan servicers to handle the volume of Direct Loans.  During the life of your loan(s), Direct Loan may transfer your loan from one loan servicer to another loan servicer. 

Your loan servicer can be identified by logging into the National Student Loan Data System with your FSA ID (FAFSA login).  Once signed into NSLDS student access, click "Financial Aid Review" to see a list of your Federal Loans.  On the "Authorization" screen, under "Loans" click the loan number in the left column for your loan servicer's name and contact information. Questions regarding repayment, repayment plans, deferment, forbearance, etc. should be directed to the appropriate loan servicer.
