How will I be billed for my loan repayment?
When are payments due?
What options are available for making payments?
The University of Iowa contracts with Heartland Campus Solutions ECSI (ECSI) for billing and processing of payments on your Federal campus based loan, Perkins loan, and Institutional loan.
Monthly billing statements for UI student loan repayments are issued from ECSI, not The University of Iowa. Monthly loan installments are based on a fixed total installment. This means that monthly payments remain constant, and include monthly principal and interest.
To sign up for eBilling go to https://heartland.ecsi.net. In the event the account becomes past due, a paper statement will be sent in addition to the email notification.
The monthly due date of payments to ECSI corresponds closely with the University U-Bill due date. Loans are billed on the first day of each month, with the payment due on the 22nd day of that month.
ECSI lets borrowers access their accounts online at https://heartland.ecsi.net. Through this site, a borrower can verify when payments are received, update address and phone information, check their account balance, obtain loan payoff amounts, sign up for electronic billing, and make payments. Forms can also be downloaded for deferments, forbearance requests, etc.
Borrowers can create a profile and securely link to their University of Iowa loan information using either an ECSI-provided Heartland Key, or school code (Y4), SSN, and PIN/Password. For assistance setting up a profile, contact ECSI at 888-549-3274.
The following options are available for making your payments to ECSI:
- Online EFT/ACH Payments:
Make online payments at https://heartland.ecsi.net. Borrowers will need the University of Iowa school code Y4, SSN, and their PIN. A lost PIN may be reset through the Heartland Campus Solutions/ECSI website. For assistance contact ECSI at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-549-3274, from 7:30 am to 8:00 pm EST. Transaction fees may apply.
