Inceptia Publishes Guide for Resuming Student Loan Repayment

Lincoln, Neb. (July 17, 2023) – Nebraska nonprofit Inceptia has been educating students for a decade via the Great Advice series of online e-guides. The newest guide, Great Advice for Repayment, specifically seeks to help student borrowers understand and prepare for the end of the pandemic-related loan repayment pause.


This special edition comes as the moratorium on federal student loan payments reached its end on June 30th. Now, after over three years of repayment reprieve, student borrowers have a steep learning curve to prepare for payments to resume in October.


“Students are all over the map in terms of what they know about repayments,” says Carissa Uhlman, vice president of student success at Inceptia. “For some who graduated or left school during the past three years, they’ve never had to make payments at all. The whole process will be completely new to them. Or for those who previously made payments, they may be familiar with the process, but unsure about who their servicer is, or how to review their loan information. It’s going to be a big adjustment for everyone.”


She continues, “But for all students, I think there are just a lot of questions about how to prepare, who to contact, and what options are available. We made Great Advice for Repayment as a way to concisely answer exactly those top-of-mind questions.”


Great Advice for Repayment represents Inceptia’s collaboration with the personal finance experts at NerdWallet to provide the most current information, including the latest Supreme Court ruling on student debt cancellation.


“Great Advice for Repayment” is available now as a free download and is meant to be shared with all audiences.
