Private Student Loan Payment Options

Students make no payments until 6 months after leaving school

Or make early payments anytime while in school.

Managing your student loans responsibly can benefit your credit rating and potentially assist your future financial goals. You have various options for making your private student loan payments, including automatic payments, paying online, by phone or mail, or at a Wells Fargo banking location.

Automatic Payment

Once you’ve left school and are receiving monthly billing statements, automatic payments might be a helpful way to ensure you never miss a payment.

With automatic payments, payments are automatically deducted from your bank account each month and you may qualify for a 0.25% interest rate discount. Please contact us at 1-800-658-3567 to see if your loan is eligible to receive an interest rate discount.

Whether or not you have a deposit account with Wells Fargo, you can Sign On to Wells Fargo Online® to set up automatic payments.

Or, if you prefer, download, complete and submit the Automatic Payment Authorization Form.

Online Transfers and Payments

You can make a payment by transferring funds from a Wells Fargo deposit account or a non-Wells Fargo account through Wells Fargo Online.
