You can make a one-time payment from your Member Center, by check, or over the phone.
Unless you specify otherwise, one-time payments go toward your current monthly payment first, and any additional amount beyond that goes toward your principal balance. So if you’ve already made your full monthly payment before your due date, additional payments are “principal only” payments.
Keep in mind that if you make early payments that don’t fully cover your next upcoming payment amount, you’ll still be responsible for your full monthly payment. If you’re on autopay, your full monthly amount will still be withdrawn from your linked account as scheduled.
If your loan is on track and you want an extra payment to go toward principal immediately, you can indicate that when you make the payment. You can also fully prepay your loan anytime. If you choose to pay off your loan early, you won’t owe any more interest, and your monthly payments will end. See Paying off your loan for instructions. Take note that some payment options might not be available for these principal and payoff payments.
Sections in this article cover:
- Sign in to your Member Center.
- Click View Loan, then Make a Payment.
- Under Payment Type, choose Principal only.
- Enter the amount you want to pay and click Next. If you need to change the amount, click the back arrow and enter a new amount.
- Review your payment details, then click Pay Now. You’ll see a Success! message once the payment is complete.
Note: The review page shows the payment amount, date, bank name, and the last four digits of your bank account. It also tells you the earliest date your payment can be processed. Once you click Pay Now, you can’t go back or change the payment amount.
