Although the standard loan repayment term is 10 years, alternative repayment options are available for students who are unable to pay back their loan(s) according to the standard terms. Information about these plans may be found here: Repayment Plans. To explore the options which would apply to your situation, you may use the Repayment Estimator logging in with your FAFSA pin.
For additional guidance regarding finances and repayment the following half hour counseling sessions are very helpful:
Financial awareness counseling (if you are in the middle of your program)
Exit counseling (if you are dropping below half-time enrollment, withdrawing or are graduating)
