Know What You Owe

It is important to keep track what you’ve borrowed (before, during, and after law school!). 

  • Your federal student loans will be serviced by one or more Federal Loan Servicing Centers. Your Federal Student Aid summary will disclose your servicer(s) and will provide you with web, email, and phone contact information.
  • Consider making interest payments while you are in-school.  Both the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan and Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan accrue interest while you are in school and throughout repayment.
  • Private/alternative student loan information isn’t kept on a single database.  Check your own records or look up your credit history on www.annualcreditreport.com.  Most Syracuse Law students borrow federal loans, not private loans.
