Depends if they're federal loans or private. They're governed by different rules and consequences of non payment.

Federally subsidized student loans do not have a statute of limitations (they do not fall off the credit report after a specified period of time) and generally cannot be discharged in bankruptcy.  There is supposedly a special hardship discharge but that is something I only heard about once and that was some years ago.
