College Debt

Get help with college debt from ACCC.

College debt can be a real burden on your finances and a barrier to reaching some of life’s major milestones. Many people in their 30s, 40s, and even 50s are finding that their student education loans have prevented them from purchasing a home, saving for retirement or getting married.

If you’re struggling with the weight of college debt, American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) can help. We’re a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping people get control of their finances and make plans for a future free of debt. With free credit counseling and an affordable debt management program, we can help you determine the best way to repay student loan debt and get back on the path to achieving your financial goals.

  • A new repayment plan with terms that work better for your budget. Options include graduated, extended, income-based, income-contingent, and income-sensitive repayment plans.
  • Deferment and forbearance. Depending on your circumstances, you may be eligible to defer repayment of your college debt until you are in a better financial position.
