With your college graduation now an exciting memory, you may be thinking ahead to loan repayment and wondering exactly how much you’ve borrowed. The type of loans you have, where you borrowed them from, the terms of the loans, and the total amount borrowed are all critical pieces of information you need to have in order to tackle the loan repayment process. While students typically attend an “exit counseling” session prior to graduating at which important loan repayment information is shared, it’s equally important to go one step further on your own to ensure that you have identified all of your education loans. Understanding the exact amount of your student loan debt and developing a detailed repayment plan is the key to being a successful borrower.
