Your loan servicer is assigned by the Department of Education following the origination and disbursement of your first Federal Direct Loan.  Your servicer will contact you after the first disbursement on your loan is made and will continue to communicate with you throughout your college years and in repayment.  If your circumstances change at any time during your repayment period, your loan servicer will be able to help.  While you should remain with your servicer for the life of your loan(s), if anything changes, you will be notified in advance.
