Welcome to MOHELA

If you recently received notification from FedLoan Servicing that your loans will be transferring to MOHELA, welcome to MOHELA! Please refer to the following transfer information. You can also find general information about how loan transfers work from Federal Student Aid.

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) has transferred the customer service of your federal student loan account from FedLoan Servicing to MOHELA, another member of ED’s federal loan servicer team. Your loans were not sold. ED will continue to own your loans; however, MOHELA will manage your loans and assist you on ED’s behalf as your federal student loan servicer. This change in servicer will not impact the existing terms, conditions, interest rate or available repayment plans of your federal student loans.

Your full account details should be available no later than 10 business days after the loan transfer date included in the transfer notification sent from Fed Loan Servicing.

Watch for more information when the transfer is complete. We look forward to providing you with excellent service!
