after I graduate, withdraw, or am no longer enrolled on at least a half-time basis.
I understand that:
I am not required to make payments of loan principal or interest during my deferment.
My deferment will begin, as certified by the authorized official, on the date I became eligible for the deferment.
My deferment will end, as certified by the authorized official, on the date I no longer qualify for the deferment.
If I am a Perkins Loan borrower, I will receive a 6-month post-deferment grace period beginning on the date I no
longer qualify for the deferment.
If I am a graduate or professional student borrower of a Direct or Federal PLUS Loan first disbursed on or after July 1,
2008, I will also receive a deferment on this loan during the 6-month period after I am no longer enrolled at least
half time.
If I am a parent borrower of a Direct or Federal PLUS Loan first disbursed on or after July 1, 2008, and I request it
above, I will receive another deferment on this loan during the 6-month period after I am no longer enrolled at least
half time.
My loan holder may grant me a forbearance while processing my form or to cover any period of delinquency that
exists when I submit my form.
Unpaid interest may capitalize on my loans during or at the expiration of my deferment or forbearance, but interest
never capitalizes on Perkins Loans.

William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan)
Program
includes Federal Direct Stafford/Ford (Direct
Subsidized) Loans, Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford/
Ford (Direct Unsubsidized) Loans, Federal Direct PLUS
(Direct PLUS) Loans, and Federal Direct Consolidation
(Direct Consolidation) Loans.

Loans).

Capitalization
is the addition of unpaid interest to the
principal balance of your loan. Capitalization causes more
interest to accrue over the life of your loan and may cause
your monthly payment amount to increase. Interest never
capitalizes on Perkins Loans. Table 1 (below) provides an
example of the monthly payments and the total amount
repaid for a $30,000 unsubsidized loan. The example loan
has a 6% interest rate and the example deferment or
forbearance lasts for 12 months and begins when the loan
entered repayment. The example compares the effects of
paying the interest as it accrues or allowing it to capitalize.
A
co-maker
is one of the two individuals who are joint
borrowers on a Direct or Federal Consolidation Loan or a
Federal PLUS Loan. Both borrowers are equally responsible
for repaying the full amount of the loan.
Table 1. Capitalization Chart
A
deferment
is a period during which you are entitled to
postpone repayment of your loans. Interest is not generally
charged to you during a deferment on your subsidized loans.
Interest is always charged to you during a deferment on your
unsubsidized loans. On loans made under the Perkins Loan
Program, all deferments are followed by a post-deferment
grace period of 6 months, during which time you are not
required to make payments.
An
eligible school
is a school that has been approved by
the Department to participate in the Department's Federal
Student Aid programs, even if the school does not participate

to postpone making payments temporarily, allowed an
extension of time for making payments, or temporarily
allowed to make smaller payments than scheduled.

holder
of your Direct Loans is the Department. The
holder of your FFEL Program loans may be a lender, guaranty
agency, secondary market, or the Department. The holder of
your Perkins Loans is an institution of higher education or the
Department. Your loan holder may use a servicer to handle
billing and other communications related to your loans.
References to “your loan holder” on this form mean either
your loan holder or your servicer.
A
regular student
is a person who is enrolled or accepted
for enrollment at an institution for the purpose of obtaining a
degree, certificate, or other recognized educational credential
offered by the institution.
