Student loan servicers collect payments, provide customer service, and otherwise manage the administration of student debt. You're assigned a private loan servicer for federal student loans and can't change your servicer without refinancing or consolidating your loans.

Many or all of the companies featured provide compensation to LendEDU. These commissions are how we maintain our free service for consumers. Compensation, along with hours of in-depth editorial research, determines where & how companies appear on our site.
