Will my student loans come out of default if I go back to school?
Yes. When you consolidate defaulted student loans, your student loan will return to good standing. It is no longer in default. This means that you are once again eligible for federal benefits including receiving further financial aid.
How long do student loans stay in default?
Defaulted federal student loans either fall off seven years after the date of default, or seven years after the date the loan was transferred from the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFEL) to the Department of Education.
Can I buy a house if my student loan is in default?

Student loans don’t go away after 7 years. There is no program for loan forgiveness or loan cancellation after 7 years. However, if it’s been more than 7.5 years since you made a payment on your student loan debt and you default, the debt and the missed payments can be removed from your credit report.
Can I settle student loan debt?
Student loan settlement is possible, but you’re at the mercy of your lender to accept less than you owe. Don’t expect to negotiate a settlement unless: Your loans are in or near default. Your loan holder would make more money by settling than by pursuing the debt.

Can you negotiate defaulted student loans?
“In most cases, only defaulted student loans can be settled or negotiated,” he says. “Defaulting can have very serious consequences including penalties or fees, negative credit reporting, collections and litigation.”
Can defaulted student loans be removed from credit report?
Student loans reporting accurate information cannot be deleted from your credit report until it is time for the account to naturally “fall off” your report. Defaulted student loans will stay on your credit report for seven years from the original delinquency date of the debt.
What happens if you never pay your student loans?
Let your lender know if you may have problems repaying your student loan. Failing to pay your student loan within 90 days classifies the debt as delinquent, which means your credit rating will take a hit. After 270 days, the student loan is in default and may then be transferred to a collection agency to recover.
