I. Your information


Borrowers Rights and Responsibilities: Loans must be repaid whether you complete your educational program or withdraw. The amount you pay back depends on the amount you borrow. If you drop below 6 hours, graduate, or no longer attend EMCC your first payment will likely be due in 6 months. If you fail to repay the loan you will go into default. Defaulting on federal student loans will affect your ability to get other credit for credit cards, car loans, a mortgage, and other large purchases for up to 7 seven years. Defaulting means you cannot receive further federal assistance to attend college until the defaulted loan is resolved. You must notify your loan servicer in writing of a name, address or telephone number change. If for some reason you cannot make the required monthly payments on your student loan you should immediately contact your loan servicer to see if you meet the eligibility requirements to cease or suspend payments. You can visit the National Student Loan Data System to view loan information (i.e. amounts, loan servicer, etc.) for loans you currently have by going to
