|Students with prior education loans may choose to defer loan payments while enrolled at Suffolk University Law School. To defer your loans, contact your current lenders to find out how they process deferments. Suffolk transmits enrollment records to the National Student Loan Clearinghouse. Therefore, if your lenders also participate in the Clearinghouse, your loan deferment should occur automatically. However, if the lender does not participate in the Clearinghouse, you will need to submit a paper deferment form to the Office of the Registrar for manual processing. After the semester begins, all paper deferment forms are forwarded to the National Student Loan Clearinghouse for enrollment to be manually certified. You should continue to make loan payments until you are notified by your lender that the deferment has been approved.
