Financial Aid Information
- Complete Loan Exit Counseling
If you borrowed student loans at ACTC, you are required to complete Loan Exit Counseling. You can complete this at: Federal Student Aid
- Know Your Loan Servicer
Each federal student loan you obtain is assigned to a loan servicer, who handles payments and other administrative functions. You are responsible for staying in touch with your servicer and making payments, even if you do not receive a bill. You can find out who your servicer is at: the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)
- Understand Loan Repayment
Repayment begins six months after you graduate. Loan servicers offer several different repayment plans to assist borrowers in paying off their student loan debt. Contact your loan servicer, before repayment begins, to identify the best repayment plan for your circumstances.
- Avoid Loan Delinquency & Default
Be a responsible borrower. Failing to make on-time payments on your student loan will result in your student loan being delinquent and possibly going into default. There are severe consequences associated with loan default including loss of financial aid eligibility, withholding of federal and state tax refunds, garnishment of earned wages, and not being hired to work.
