Federal Direct Loans

Loan Payment After School

Visit the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) to access and monitor all of your federal loan information, including contact information for your loan servicers.

After you graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time enrollment, you will have a six-month grace period before you are required to begin repayment. During this period, you will receive repayment information from your loan servicer, and you will be notified of your first payment due date.

If you are having trouble making your loan payments, contact the USF Financial Education Program or your loan servicer immediately for assistance. Each can help you understand your options for keeping your loan in good standing.
