How do I pay off student loans?

After you graduate, the process of paying your balance will become quite routine. Most lenders have a portal that will allow you to log in each month and pay a portion of your student loan balance, at or above your minimum payment. You can often set up automatic payments that will be deducted from a checking or savings account on a monthly basis. And if you want to make additional one-off payments, you can also make lump sum payments to decrease your student loan balance more quickly.
