Student Loan Default

Failure to repay a student loan according to the terms agreed to. For the FFEL and Direct Loan programs, your student loan is in default if you fail to make a payment for 270 days, if you repay monthly (or 330 days, if your payments are due less frequently). Your lender is required to report the default to at least one national credit bureau.
