Active Duty Military Deferments

If you are on active military duty, including reservists, you may not be required to make student loan payments while you are deployed.

If you have an outstanding student loan and are, or soon will be, on active military duty, you should contact your lender to inform them about your active duty status and find out what options are available to you while you are on active military duty. If you have taken out loans, even if they are not yet in repayment, you must take action. Otherwise your loans will automatically move to repayment while you are away. Your personal copy of your student loan records is the best place to identify all your lenders and their contact information.

You can access the National Student Clearinghouse LoanLocator service through Patriot Web (select Student Records and then Order Enrollment Verification) to find out who your lenders are and how to contact them. Provide your lender with a copy of your military orders.
