The entire estate is responsible for the creditors of the deceased. However, because the student loans are for your daughter and payment in full would benefit your daughter, that could be apportioned against your interest in the estate as it would be unjust to require other members of the estate to pay that debt in full.

Yes. The entire estate is responsible, but they will probably take it from your inheritance since your daughter benefited from it.
