Financial Aid

Student Loan Deferment

Navigate Your Financial Plan

For many students and parents, loans represent an important resource to help finance educational expenses.1 However, if you hit a bump in your payment plan, DeVry University is here to help. In-school student loan deferments are available and allow borrowers to defer principal payments on Federal Direct loans borrowed for educational purposes. These financial aid deferments may apply to prior Federal Direct Loans which, in some cases, may extend beyond your enrollment to include a six-month grace period.

Student Loan Deferment: FAQs

If you need a prior undergraduate student loan deferment or you need to defer graduate financial aid obligations in order to earn your graduate degree, please review the following frequently asked questions.

DeVry participates in the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), reporting all students’ enrollment status on a session-by-session basis. Every session within a semester, student enrollment data is transmitted automatically and electronically to the NSC on the following schedule:

  • Tuesday, Week 3
  • Monday, Week 6
  • Monday, Week 2 (subsequent session, for previous session)

If you are not sure if your lender has processed an in-school deferment for your previous loan(s), please contact your lender directly to confirm the status of your loan(s).
