Deferment of Your Federal Student Loans
If you borrowed from one or more of the federal student loan programs prior to your enrollment at MSPP and you have an outstanding balance due, you may elect to defer repayment of these loans by requesting an ‘in-school’ deferment.
To request an in-school deferment:
- Determine who is servicing your current loans. You may have more than one servicer. If you are receiving invoices for payment, the servicer’s name will appear on the invoice. You can also log on to National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) to view a comprehensive history of your federal student loan borrowing. Click on this link to access NSLDS: http://www.nslds.ed.gov/nslds_SA/
- Log on to the servicer’s web site and look for a link that may appear as ‘download forms’ or ‘request a deferment’.
- Download or copy the in-school deferment form to your computer and print the form.
- Complete and sign the borrower section of the form and mail the form to MSPP at this address:
- MSPP Office of Student Services
One Wells Avenue
Newton, MA 02459
The Office of the Registrar will complete the school section of the deferment form and mail it to your servicer following the completion of the MSPP fall term add-drop period.
Loans you borrow while enrolled at MSPP are automatically placed into in-school deferment status.
