2015 Student Loan Repayment Campaign
Federal Student Aid is dedicated to helping student loan borrowers understand their repayment options and manage their debt. Through the end of June 2015, we're engaging in a student loan repayment campaign to educate borrowers about the affordable repayment options that are available and to provide them with the tools and resources they need to make informed decisions. As professionals who work with student loan borrowers, you can help share this message with borrowers. We've highlighted a selection of our student loan resources and made them easy for you to share.
