National Collegiate Student Loan Trust is one of the nation’s largest holders of private student loan debts. It purchases delinquent student loan debts from several banks such as Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, and Citizens bank and sues the borrowers to collect those debts. It collects debts from borrowers using its loan servicer American Education Services, debt collection agencies and law firms. National Collegiate Student Loan comprises 15 trusts that hold 800,000 private student loans which in total amount to $12 billion. These trusts were created by a company called First Marblehead.

National Collegiate Trust owns only private student debt and not federal loans. Therefore, NCSLT loans are not eligible for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness programm, income-driven repayment plans, or any other perks that the Department of Education provides to its borrowers.

 

Although National Collegiate Student Loan Trust, LLC denies that it is a debt collector, the trust does qualify as a debt collector under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) because it effectively purchases defaulted debts in order to collect them. It also owns the account.

 

National Collegiate Trust has a reputation for using aggressive and illegal tactics to collect debts. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("CFPB") in September 2017 penalized the National Collegiate Trusts and Transworld for $21.6 million for pursuing illegal debt-collection lawsuits. The CFPB discovered that Transworld and the National Collegiate Trusts had filed lawsuits against consumers in state courts for alleged debts that they were either unable to prove were actually owed or that were too old to sue.
