The Options and applicable Criteria are:

1.Extension of Payment Period: Criteria: The Borrower’s loan repayment must be current with all payments, fees, and other costs fully paid through the date of the application for extension.

  • A Borrower who enrolled prior to January 2024 and who has less than a seven year repayment term and finds that he/she is having difficulty meeting the monthly payment may apply to have the loan repayment period extended for up to a seven year period.
  • A Borrower who enrolled after January 2024, and who has less than a three year repayment term and finds that he/she is having difficulty meeting the monthly payment may apply to have the loan repayment period extended for up to a three year period.
