What happens if I send in extra money when making my monthly payment?
Any extra money sent will be posted to the principal balance providing you are in current status. If you have multiple loans and you want the extra funds to be applied to a specific loan you need to specify this when making your payment.
Why am I getting a bill if I am in a residency program?
A deferment form was never completed. Please contact the Bursar’s Office for the form. Once you have the form, fill out the first page and have the second page authorized by your department official and return to the Bursar’s Office for processing. The form will not be processed without the authorization signature of the department official. Please note that a deferment form is required annually until you are no longer in a program.
How long can I defer my loan?
You can defer your University or Health Professions Loan unlimitedly providing you’re in a residency program and you have filed the appropriate deferment form annually. You can also defer your loan if you are in a fellowship for up to two years providing the appropriate deferment form has been filed.
Can my parents or spouse call the Bursar’s Office with billing questions?
You must give the Bursar’s Office permission to discuss your account with your parents or spouse. Due to FERPA, we are unable to speak to individuals unless we have permission from borrower.
I am now in repayment and my financial situation has changed. Can I put my loan in rehabilitation or forbearance?
You need to contact the Bursar’s Office and let them know that you are having financial hardship.
