You got to factor in which ones are charging the highest interest and if you can save money by paying them off early (some loans actually give you a penalty for paying off early, so you may have to check with your lender) but usually it is best to pay off the smaller amount loans first as you feel accomplishment and it keeps you motivated. Keep this in mind though, when it comes to your credit score you will lose points when you pay off/close loans. To boost your score if that is a concern, it would be best to pay the loans all down but not pay completely off/close any and that should really boost your score.
