    Undergraduate Loans

    Advertisements



    What do most people do with their undergraduate loans while in Med. School? Is there a way to get them deferred that I haven't found? (Since MUA isn't on Stafford's 'accredited' list they said it couldn't be deferred...)

    I am not sure about US but Canadians can defer. Maybe with the new Davenport loan with the whole MBA combined degree, you maybe able to since that is stafford.

    Canadians don't have stafford but Ontarians can defer their OSAP.
    Since Davenport loans are Stafford, I think there maybe a possibility of deferring. Something you may want to take up with the loan company / Financial Aid Office. Good luck!

    Your Stafford student loans can be deferred they are just not deferred automatically. You need to call up you student loan company and submit a form from the school that you are enrolled as a student. The ladies in the office can do that for you just send it to your student loan company.

    I have done this myself for the previous two years since I have been enrolled at MUA.

    I have undergraduate loans from the U.S., Sallie Mae is manging them. Due to the fact that MUA is not approved by the U.S department of education the Stafford loans that are suposed to be subsidized are not getting subsidized. Every year I have to submit an application for deferement. Very simple I do it online within minutes.

    Correction, my loans were not deferred, they are on forebearance, which makes me responsible for interest and its not subsidized.
