Unless you have made prior arrangements with our office, paying over your minimum monthly payment will be applied to a single month. Any amount overpaid will be applied to your principle balance.
This can be done one of several ways. You can either call our office directly, change it with Metropolitan State University of Denver or via the internet at ACS.
You will be notified via mail shortly before you enter into repayment. Once you go into repayment, you will be sent out monthly billing statements with a coupon. All you need to do is detach the coupon from your statement and mail it in. Payments can also be made over the phone to our office at 303-556-2913 or 1-888-310-8781.

Remember any payment you make over your minimum monthly payment will go towards principle.
