Who Is National Collegiate Student Loan Trust?
I often receive phone calls asking me who is National Collegiate Student Loan Trust and why are they suing me if I never took out a loan with them? It can be confusing to receive notice that you are being sued by National Collegiate Student Loan Trust, when you don’t know who they are. The bank you took out your original private student loan with are called the “originators” of the loan. In addition to some of the ones listed previously, NCT also purchases student loans in a trust pool from Charter One Banks, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Union Federal Savings and others.
It doesn’t matter that you didn’t take out your student loan with National Collegiate Student Loan Trust, they now own your debt and you now owe them. When NCT takes over your lawsuit and if you have kept up with your payments, then American Education Services (AES) will be servicing your loan. If your NCT loan goes into default (more on this in the next section), then they will be transferred to Transworld Systems, Inc. (TSI) for servicing and collections.
