Research Tools: U.S. Dept. of Education Launches New Centralized Hub to Access Student Aid Information
From U.S. Dept. of Education:
The new StudentAid.gov is now the singular place where students, parents, and borrowers can learn about available types of student aid, find the right repayment plan, complete loan counseling, and fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form. The new StudentAid.gov consolidates into one singular location the student-facing portions of StudentLoans.gov, fsaid.ed.gov, and nslds.ed.gov.
In addition to the revamped website, borrowers can now access all the loan servicer contact centers through one phone number: 1-800-4-FED-AID. This number includes a new interactive voice response function to direct customers to the appropriate place, eliminating confusion and frustration for borrowers. The myStudentAid mobile app has also been updated and enhanced so that customers can seamlessly switch between completing tasks on the app and the web.
The new StudentAid.gov has these resources (and more) in one user-friendly spot:
