Student Loan Management

How do I see how much I owe in student loans?

The easiest way is to log into with your FSA ID. This will inform you of the amount of loans disbursed to you. On the right-hand side, click the servicer information to create an account with your loan servicer. You will see your current balance due, make payment arrangements, and repay your loans through your servicer. You can also review all of your loans by logging into the National Student Loan Database.

How do I calculate repayment options and organize my loans?

Organize your loans and run repayment calculations through the AAMC MedLoansCalculator. You’ll need to use your AAMC log-in to access this tool.
