Commercially-Held Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) The Department is working with FFEL lenders to ensure that commercially-held federal student loan borrowers can also benefit from cancellation without having to consolidate into the Direct Loan program. FFEL borrowers do NOT need to do anything now while the Department pursues this solution. In the meantime, borrowers with commercially-held FFEL loans may choose to consolidate into the Direct Loan program to become eligible for relief. Before you make this decision, we encourage you to learn more about loan consolidation at: https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/consolidation School Attendance Your education goals may change over time; if you’re unsure if school is still right for you, we might contact you to talk it out, identify any hurdles you’re facing, and provide information to make the choice that is right for you.
