Information Regarding Student Loan Deferments

Most enrolled students receive automatic deferments. If, however, you receive a deferment form from your lender or loan servicer, contact the lender and tell them to get your enrollment information from the National Student Clearinghouse. If you still believe a paper deferment form needs to be processed, submit the form to the Registrar's Office, where it will be forwarded to the Clearinghouse for processing according to their requirements. Check the list of participating lenders and servicers to see if your lending organization offers paperless deferment. If you wish your information limited in this process - please see the Registrar's Office Certification Official to discuss your needs.  In some cases the official cover page for Gallaudet University - Registrar's Office will be attached to the document/form for you to submit.

If you are still enrolled and receive a collection letter, contact your lender or loan servicer to verify that your deferment has been processed. If it has not, contact the Clearinghouse at 703-742-4200 and ask to speak to a Student Service Representative. The representative will verify your deferment information and, if you are being threatened with default, intervene on your behalf with your lender/servicer to ensure your deferment is processed on a priority basis.

Current student enrollment is reported automatically to the National Student Clearinghouse for loan deferment purposes. Most lenders, guarantors, and loan servicers provide paperless deferments based on enrollment data reported to them by the Clearinghouse.  If contacting a lender about a deferment, tell them to get your enrollment information from the National Student Clearinghouse.   A Verification Supplemental Page (printable PDF document) that provides additional information for all third party requestors.  This supplemental page will be submitted with the enrollment verifications and degree certifications submitted to the Registrar's Office as needed.

You may download our Supplemental Information Page to use with your lender guarantor or other providers.
