Loan Deferments

The status of postdocs at Stanford makes them eligible for loan deferment. Stanford participates in quarterly electronic uploads to the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC). These uploads are automatic and require no action on your part.

Submit a student loan deferment form if your status is reported incorrectly.

Instructions for Submitting a Loan Deferment Form:

  1. Download a form directly from your loan agency's website.

  2. Complete your section only and sign the form.

  3. Submit the form to the OPA via a HelpSU ticket (the form can be attached to the ticket). Include the address and/or fax number of your loan agency. This is usually found on one of the later pages of the form itself.

  4. OPA will complete and sign the institutional section and submit it directly to your loan agency within 3-5 business days.

  5. You will be provided a scanned copy of the completed form via email.
