A change in career goals, the loss of a job, or other unexpected changes in your situation could make repaying your loans more difficult than you expected. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you could qualify for a deferment or forbearance:
- Enrolled at least half-time at a postsecondary school
- Unable to find full-time employment
- Experiencing economic hardship
- On active military duty
Contact your loan servicer to discuss your options. You can retrieve your loan information at www.nslds.ed.gov. This is a federal website and you can login using your FAFSA PIN.
