Where can I find my student account number? You should be able to find your student loan account number on correspondence from your loan servicer. Correspondence might include a welcome letter, billing statement, loan balance, or past due notice.
Look for a 10-character ID, which may contain numbers only or numbers with letters.
You can also sign in to your higher education loan servicer’s website and look for your 10-digit account number there.
If all else fails, you can call your student loan servicer. Your servicer is a private company hired by the federal government to explain your repayment options and eligibility for loan forgiveness programs such as PSLF (Public Service Loan Forgiveness).
Is my loan number my account number? No, your loan number refers to each individual loan. Your account number is different; it refers to all your loans with a single servicer. You can have multiple loan numbers with a single servicer, but only one account number for each servicer.
