Post-Active Duty Service Deferment
Members of the National Guard or other reserve components of the Armed Forces (including retired members) called to active duty while enrolled at a post-secondary institution may defer federal student loan repayment.
After completion of your active duty service (which must include a period on or after 10/1/07) and use of any applicable grace period, deferment may be granted for up to 13 months or until you resume enrollment on at least a half-time basis.
