Student loans are not a "revolving credit" like credit cards are, but they are a debt that must be paid no matter how long it takes.  And, if these are your only credit accounts, they are not good for building credit until paid in full.  I advise taking the time to read the articles here since the purpose of Credit Karma is toi TEACH about credit and building your score.  Worked very well for me.
