Students with previous US loans must notify their lender that they have returned to school. If you do not notify your lender, your loans will begin to accrue interest and you will enter repayment.
Notify your lender
UBC can inform your lender(s) that you've returned to school through the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we submit your current enrolment information to your US lenders.
Include your US Social Security Number (SSN) in the email. We need this to add you to the Clearinghouse list. If you prefer not to email your SSN you can make your request to Enrolment Services by phone or in person.
Once we submit this update, you will be on a report that UBC completes once every 60 days for the National Student Loan Data System. You will not need to manually request an enrolment update again, unless you cease to be a full-time student at UBC for a semester or more.
In-school deferment eligibility
If you are registered in at least a half-time course load, you will be eligible for In-School Deferment for your current study period.
To determine if you are studying in at least a half-time course load, please consult the Course Load Guide or contact Enrolment Services.
