How FSA and Great Lakes Work Together
When you take out a federal student loan, you enter new relationships with:
- Federal Student Aid (FSA), an office of the U.S. Department of Education, which provided the funds, and
- Great Lakes, your loan servicer, which assists you on your repayment journey.
FSA and Great Lakes work hand-in-hand to help you pay for school and repay your loans. Each also provides valuable online resources to help you complete tasks and meet goals.
