  • A message will appear confirming when your Auto Pay will begin (you'll also receive an email). Take note of when your Auto Pay will start, so that you can make any upcoming monthly payments in the interim. 

It can take up to 5 business days for the loan dashboard to reflect that you've enrolled in Auto Pay. Until then, please refer to your confirmation email for all your Auto Pay details. 

If you're signing a loan offer and would like to enroll in Auto Pay, you can do so in the final stages of accepting your loan. “Step 5: Sign Agreement” includes a field on the second to last page where you can opt in to Auto Pay by entering the last four digits of your Social Security number. Your loan will be activated with a 0.25% interest rate reduction.

As a reminder, the interest rate reduction for Auto Pay will be available only while your loan is enrolled in Auto Pay and will be removed if terminated. Your minimum payment amount may increase to account for the higher interest rate. Re-enrollment allows the interest rate reduction to resume. Interest rate incentives for utilizing Auto Pay may not be combined with certain private student loan repayment programs that also offer an interest rate reduction.
