Contacting TSAC

Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation

Student Loan Customer Service Contact

For over fifty years, the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation has been an ardent participant in the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP).  TSAC is proud to have guaranteed over $13 billion of student loans during those years, assisting students, schools and lenders in and around the state of Tennessee.  Since the end of FFELP in 2010, TSAC has continued to service our portfolio with care and diligence.  In September of 2015, after much consideration, the TSAC Board of Directors voted to exit the program and relinquish the portfolio.  TSAC is pleased that the U.S. Department of Education selected Educational Credit Management Corporation (ECMC) to assume the guaranty portfolio and associated guarantor responsibilities for the state of Tennessee.  TSAC is confident that ECMC shares our utmost commitment to borrowers, and that it will continue to provide the highest level of service and dedication to meeting their needs during and after this transition.  Effective July 1, 2016, all communications related to TSAC loans may be directed to ECMC, at 888-221-3262 or

TSAC will continue its involvement in loan education by offering Default Management and Financial Literacy programs, as well as other partnership initiatives with post-secondary institutions in Tennessee.
