Repayment, Default and Debt Management
What you need to know…and were afraid to ask…


Lincoln University is committed to making sure that its students succeed throughout their college career and beyond. Therefore, Default and Debt Management education is a must. Students must realize the importance of sensible borrowing of student loans and the use of credit cards. Debt Management education must start in your freshman year and extend through graduation. It is easy to borrow, but repayment can be difficult. Lincoln strives to educate students on the importance of finding scholarships to replace student loans.

Understanding and minimizing your indebtedness will benefit you after graduation.

Repayment of your student loan will ensure that future Lincoln University students will be afforded the same benefits of financial aid that you have.

Responsible borrowing will help you:

Establish credit

Secure future borrowing for homes, cars, and graduate school

Obtain credit cards

Neglect of your student loan responsibility may cause:

Negative credit report

Wage garnishment

Tax offset (seize of federal tax refund)

Credit and Loan denial

These options are available to you:
