* May not be available for all loans.

The deferments listed are available to borrowers with Undergraduate and Graduate Student Loans.

If at any time during the repayment period you enter an approved internship, clerkship, fellowship, or residency program you may contact us to request a deferment. To apply for this deferment, you must submit a form completed by you and an official from the approved program, to us for consideration. If you receive the deferment, the Current Amount Due you will be required to pay each month during the deferment period will reflect the same repayment option that applied to your loan during the in-school period. Deferment periods are issued in up to 12-month increments. You can receive a maximum of four/five 12-month deferment periods (48/60-month maximum). Interest is charged during the deferment period and Unpaid Interest may be added to the Current Principal at the end of each deferment period, which will increase the Total Loan Cost.
