How to Close a Sallie Mae Account

Sallie Mae is a finance company that specializes in financial services for college students. This includes offering a student checking account that comes with a MasterCard debit card. The student checking account also offers a direct deposit service that allows users to have their paychecks automatically put in the specified account. Students may want to close the account to move to another bank.

Step 1

Call the Sallie Mae customer service number at 877-346-2756 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Step 2

Enter your account number when prompted by the phone line. Follow the prompts to speak to a customer service representative.

Step 3

Tell the customer service representative you want to close your account. If you have any funds remaining in the account, you can transfer them to another Sallie Mae account, or you can request a check for the account amount.
