Can I pay my student loan in full at any time?

If you are financially able to do so, it may make sense for you to pay off your student loans early. Lenders typically call this “prepayment in full.” Generally there are no penalties involved in paying off your student loans early. However, you should make sure you know how much you currently owe. Check with your loan servicer to get a “payoff quote” – an estimate of how much you need to pay in order to pay the loan in full. Generally, your payoff quote is good for several days.
