Federal Student Loan Forbearance

Forbearance is a way to delay repayment on your federal student loans if you don't qualify for deferment.

Note: Borrower benefit programs may be revoked or suspended during periods of forbearance.

Interest During Forbearance

If you choose to place your loans in forbearance:

  • Interest will accrue and may be added to your loan; therefore, forbearing payments for an extended period of time may substantially increase your loan balance.
  • We strongly encourage you to make payments that at least cover your accrued interest before your forbearance ends to avoid increases in your loan balance.
