Loan Summary & Statistics

1. Access your Federal Financial Aid Loan record in the National Student Loan Data System at www.nslds.ed.gov.

2. Please check your promissory notes to determine the exact interest rates and grace periods of your loans.

3. Your lenders should be in the process of sending you notices regarding your loans.

It is very important for you to open whatever is sent to you as you may be asked to complete and return information to the lender or the loan servicer. Failure to remain in contact with your lender may result in loan servicing problems, including delinquency or default that could have been avoided.

4. If you are uncertain who the holder of your loan is, contact the original lender. If they have sold your loan or assigned a servicer, they will be able to tell you who holds your note.

5. If you default on a student loan, your credit will be directly impacted AND the authority of UNH School of Law to offer federal loans for future students may be restricted.

UNH School of Law has the authority for federal loan eligibility based upon prior default statistics. This privilege can be limited, suspended or terminated by the federal government or private lenders, which would mean future UNH School of Law students would be unable to borrow.

In addition, the amount of Federal Perkins Loan and Federal Work-Study funds awarded to UNH School of Law for distribution to students is also impacted by prior student loan defaults.
