This page is designed to help you contact your lenders and servicers during repayment, or when you are preparing to begin repayment. It contains contact information for the various lenders through which you may have borrowed during your time at Harvard Law School. This is not, however, an exhaustive list. In general, you will receive your bills electronically unless you have opted to receive a monthly paper bill or voucher. Your account number is assigned to you by your lender. If you do not have your account number, most lenders will be able to locate your loan history by using your social security number or other identifying factors.
The StudentAid.gov dashboard (FSA login required) is your best resource for your federal loans and the SFS Portal’s Borrowing History page for your overall borrowing history while at HLS. Keep in mind that all of your loans are report to one or all of the three major credit reporting companies. By viewing all of your credit reports, you should have a complete history of your loan borrowing for both undergraduate and graduate degrees.
