Locate your student loans
It is vitally important to keep track of your student loans!
Student loans can be hard to keep track of at times.
- Many student loan borrowers find themselves with accounts serviced at multiple locations, owned by multiple lenders or even guaranteed by several guarantors.
- Also, it's very common for loans to be transferred from one servicer or lender to another.
