You begin repaying Federal Direct Stafford loans six months after graduation, leaving school, or dropping below half-time enrollment. You must complete federally required Exit Counseling before you graduate from SPC, if you drop below half-time attendance, or withdraw from classes completely. Your academic records will be on hold until this is completed.
The Department of Education offers Loan Repayment Plans and Calculators.
When your loan is due, the federal loan servicer will mail you a payment schedule with your monthly payment of principal and interest, and the unpaid balance for each month it takes to repay your total debt. If they do not contact you, you are responsible for contacting them at:
