On the paper statement you'll find any payments we've received in the last 30 days and the amount of your scheduled monthly payment. If you have a past due amount or fees, they'll be included here, too. On the email statement, you'll find your total amount due and your due date. To find any payment history or late fees due, log into your account to view your billing statement online.

This is where you can find a snapshot of your accounts—how much you borrowed, how much you've repaid, and how much you still owe. Each month these numbers help you see that you're making progress repaying your student loans. If you receive an email statement, log into your account to see your progress online.

Get all the details

The Accounts in this Statement section provides a breakdown of each loan. You'll find your interest rate, any fees paid, the lifetime amount paid, and much more. It's important to note that if you have multiple student loans at the same interest rate in an account, those loans are grouped together and shown as a single amount on your statement. You can see your loans broken down individually on your Payment Schedule and Disclosure or your Account Summary. If you receive the email statement, log into your account to see your Accounts in this Statement. If you receive a paper statement, it's on the second sheet of paper.

Remember, it's easy to view your statement online each month.
