Please contact your loan servicer to get assistance with resolving your defaulted loan(s). You can review the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) at https://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds/nslds_SA/ if you're unsure of who your federal student loan servicer is or which type of loan(s) you have. Note that information about any private student loan you may have received will not be included in NSLDS.

You have several options for getting your loan out of default. These include:

-Repaying the defaulted amount in full

-loan rehabilitation by making nine monthly payments (made within 20 days of each due date) over a period of 10 consecutive months, and

-loan consolidation

Once the default has been cleared with the lender, please submit a "Default Clearance Letter" to the Financial Aid Office that confirms this has been resolved and you are no longer in default with your loan(s).

Additional details and resources to assist you with getting out of default can be found on the Federal Student Aid Website at: https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/default/get-out
