President Trump has directed the Secretary of Education to extend federal student loan flexibilities for the COVID-19 emergency through Dec. 31, 2020. We are updating our websites and systems as quickly as possible to explain the types of relief now available for federal student loans held by the Department of Education. We appreciate your patience. Visit StudentAid.gov/coronavirus for updates.
This site will provide you with accurate information and assistance to help resolve defaulted loans or grants assigned to the Department’s Default Resolution Group. The following loan and grant programs are included:
If your loan is in default or you have a grant overpayment and are not sure what type of loan or grant you have, check your original loan/grant documents or use our National Student Loan Data System. If the loan/grant is not one of the program types listed above and is not assigned to the U.S. Department of Education, the information on this site does not apply to you. To proceed, select the user link below that applies to you.
