Manage Loans

Online Access to Your Direct Loans

If you would like to access your Direct Loan information, view your loan balance or payment history, change the date your payment is due, select a new repayment plan, change your address or download debit forms you will need to contact your loan servicer. Log into the National Student Loan Database System to find your Loan Servicer's contact information.

Exit Counseling/Repayment Options

If you previously received a Subsidized or Unsubsidized Stafford loan or a Graduate PLUS loan and are no longer enrolled at least half time (including withdrawning or graduating from the University of Idaho) you are required to complete Exit Counseling. Use your federal FSA ID to sign into StudentLoans.gov, click on the "Complete Counseling" option and select "Exit Counseling" to begin the process.

Exit Counseling will help you understand your payment options, provide you with loan servicer contact information, and provide the balance of your federally backed loans.

After you graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time enrollment, you have six months, called a grace period, before you must begin repayment of your Direct Subsidized and Direct Unsubsidized loans.

Parents who have borrowed Parent PLUS loans have the option to defer payments on their PLUS loan as long as their student remains enrolled in at least half-time credits.

The Direct Loan Program offers a variety of repayment plans. You can select the one that is right for your financial circumstances and switch repayment plans at any time without penalty.

    For more information on any repayment plans, please visit the repayment page on the Student Aid on the Web website.

    Cancellation/Forgiveness Options for Loans

    In certain circumstances, your loans can be discharged or canceled. Select a link below for more information on the different cancellation options.
