How might a private student lender collect payments from me?
Unlike federal student loans, a private student lender will generally need to go to court in order to collect payments from you. Your rights may vary based on the state you live in.
However, even without a court order, your lender can still contact you to seek payment, and may provide negative information about your default to a credit reporting agency that will adversely impact your credit report.
