Student Loan Default

Students who have not defaulted on a loan, may under certain conditions defer (postpone payment on) a student loan after leaving school.

See Borrower Rights and Responsibilities for a list of the more common conditions under which loans may be deferred.

Students who feel they may be eligible for a student loan deferment must contact their lender.

While applying for a deferment, the student must continue to make payments until the deferment is approved. If the payments are not continued, the student may end up in default status.
