Avoid Delinquency or Default of Your Student Loans
Delinquent Loan Payment Can Fall into Default Status. - ACT NOW!
Any student who has borrowed a federal student loan to attend ISU who is also in delinquent status with their loan repayment, will be (or has already been) receiving regular e-mail, phone and text messages from "Borrow Wisely" containing information on how to resolve the delinquency and get their student loan account back into good standing.
If your loan account(s) is delinquent past 270 days, it may fall into default status (loans default at 270 days, however the agency which holds your loan, your servicer, has 90 days to transfer ownership to collections and you will be contacted to resolve your delinquency until your loan status changes to default). The financial consequences of default are *absolutely terrible* and we don't want any of our current or former students to ever have to experience them.
Contact your servicer Immediately! Ask about your options to resolve any Delinquency (or Default). Your financial future is worth the time this will take. If you do not know who the servicer is for your loans, sign onto http://www.nslds.ed.gov to Financial Aid Review. You will need your FSA ID which you can create/obtain at https://studentaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm. As you open each loan you will see the status of your loan and who the servicer is.
Contact your Servicer NOW!
