What Do I Owe in Federal Student Loans?


What do I owe in Federal Student Loans? 


The National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) lists all of your federal aid that you've received, including federal loans that you have borrowed. To find out what you owe: 

  1. Log in to the Federal Student Aid (FSA) website using your FSA ID. The FSA ID is what you use to sign your FAFSA. 
  2. Select the “Loans” tab on the dashboard. 
  3. Your total federal loan indebtedness will be listed here. You can select “View Breakdown” to see the loan history for your loan(s).  

You can also find your Federal Loan Servicer, the agency that works with you for repaying your loan. Once you know who your Federal Loan Servicer is, be sure to set up your online account to see your amount owed and any repayment or due dates. 

NOTE: NSLDS only includes federal loan and Pell Grant information. If you borrowed private loans, you will need to contact the individual lender(s) for that information.
