A healthy credit future depends on a good credit history.  You have entered the credit world through your student loan.  The loan is just as important as any other debt you will incur.  Student loans are not much different than a car loan, or any other loan, in that they do have to be repaid.  When you apply for a loan to purchase a car or a home, etc., your student loan repayment history will be important.  The big difference is that student loans have such a variety of privileges that it is sometimes difficult for the borrower to understand the details of those privileges.  

Feel free to contact the Student Loan Coordinator at (765) 658-4195 or e-mail if you have any questions or concerns.
