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.
Once you’ve left school and are receiving monthly billing statements, automatic payments can 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 receive 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, 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.
Sign On to Wells Fargo Online, select your student loan account then Make a Payment.
It could take 1 – 2 business days for this payment to reflect on your account.
If you have a Wells Fargo checking account, receive and pay your bill online with Wells Fargo Bill Pay. You will receive an email notification when the bill is due and a payment confirmation the day after the payment is sent. It is a fast and easy way to pay your bill.
