Beautiful leaves falling, crisp cooler days, and thoughts of school….. Fall is the season that inspires many of us to return to school to continue our education.
Don’t let this happen to you.
If you have recently returned to school take a moment and a few simple steps to ensure your student loan accounts are in their correct status:1. Call your servicer or sign in to your on-line account to verify the current status of all of your student loans. (Don't know who your servicer is? Visit www.nslds.ed.gov to locate your student loans)
3. If the loans are not in a deferment, immediately contact or visit your school’s financial aid office. Have the in-school deferment completed while you are there – you should sign the form. Ask for a copy of the completed form for your records.
5. Stay enrolled ½ time or greater until you complete your next education step! You will not have to worry about this process again!
