When do student loans fall off?

On my TU report, one Sallie Mae account reads:

 

Date of Last Activity - 09/2003

Date Closed - 09-2004

 

So would this fall off my report on 9/2010, or 9/2011?  Or not at all since it's a student loan?

Began: TU - 532; EQ - 556; EX - 555 - 3/7/2008
Updated: TU - 539 - 3/15/08; EQ 568; EX - 574 - 3/21/2008

4/26/09 - TU - 654, EX ???, EQ - haven't ran yet - it has errors.

Positive information or non defaulted trade lines stay 10 years, defaulted 7 years.

Re: When do student loans fall off?

Yes, I was thinking 7 years too - but the question would be which date they use?
After I made the original post, I was looking at my CR a good long while.  There are several reporting the exact same way, so if they fall off in 2010, my score should go way up by that time - otherwise, it would wait until 2011?  I'm just trying to determine which year they'll fall off.

I have 10 loans on my credit and then of course I consolidated the loans.  So I show the ones deferred and the others showing as transferred.  Is this hurting my credit?  Can I get the transferred ones removed since technically they are duplicate accounts?

Help please trying to get a loan.

Bear in mind that if they're Federal loans (not sure about private) and defaulted, when they're claimed by the DoE, that'll put another TL on your CRs. That new ugly will stay on for another 7 years.

These are reporting correctly since presumably a new account was opened when you consolidated.  Additionally they're probably helping your score since they bump up your average age of accounts.  If there's a history of late payments or something you can try writing goodwill letters to see if they will forgive the lates.

I believe each of my student loans fell off my credit reports 10 years after the date on which I paid that loan off.
