Repayment Options

Repayment Plans

KHESLC makes it easier to repay your student loan with a variety of options, including standard, income-based, income-sensitive and extended repayment plans. Your oldest loans are paid first. You receive annual statements of interest paid, which may help you claim an income tax credit.

Each repayment plan has its own advantages, so you should carefully consider the benefits of each. There is no prepayment penalty for any of these repayment options. For more information, click on the plan.

How Payments Are Applied

Payments are applied in the following order, unless in an Income-Based Repayment Plan:

  • Outstanding fees
  • Outstanding accrued interest
  • Principal

Payments cannot be applied to principal unless all fees and accrued interest are paid.

Special Allocations — For any payment type, if you would like to allocate a payment to a specific group or loan please complete and return the following form: Special Payment Allocation Worksheet. This form may be faxed to 502-329-7077 or mailed along with your payment to the appropriate address listed on the worksheet. Payments will be applied normally and then adjusted per special instructions in approximately three business days.

Please note: Additional or large payments may advance your due date unless otherwise instructed. Subsidized and unsubsidized consolidation loans made on the same date will be adjusted to have the same due date.

Payment reallocations must be requested within 60 days of the payment posting date.
