Student Loan Deferment is a student loan repayment option that allows a borrower to temporarily postpone student loan payments during the repayment period.
Most federal student loans offer a deferment period of up to 3 years. Private student loans don’t always have student loan deferment as an option.
Student loans in deferment often (but not always) accrue interest. Use the Student Loan Deferment Calculator below to determine how much interest you might accrue during deferment.
