Hello I recently found out that I owe over $15000 to sallie mae, $9888 to Nelnet, and $18000 to Discover for student loans.I was wondering if I died would the loans go to my cosigner or would they be forgiven or discharged?

Most Federal student loans die with you.

Most private loans go to your cosigner.

That's kind of a dark question, but it's good to know I suppose. I thought the student loans act like regular loans in this case as well.
