Item 8.01 Other Events
On July 25, 2011, the terms of the class A-4 notes (the “Notes”) issued by SLM Student Loan Trust 2005-8 are scheduled to be reset from their current terms, in accordance with the terms of the related indenture and remarketing agreement.
Pursuant to the remarketing process, the new spread on the Notes was required to be determined by no later than 3:00 P.M., New York City time, on July 20, 2011. However, sufficient committed purchasers were not obtained for all of the tendered Notes at the spread proposed by the remarketing agent. As a result, a failed remarketing has been declared. Consequently, all existing class A-4 noteholders will be required to retain their Notes on the reset date. The related interest rate for the Notes will be the failed remarketing rate which is equal to three-month LIBOR plus 0.75% per annum and the related reset period will be three months. As such, the next applicable reset date will be October 25, 2011.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the issuing entity has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
