Student Loan Deferments

Barry University submits electronic files of enrollment information to the National Student Clearinghouse regularly throughout each term.  National Student Clearinghouse supplies verification of student enrollment status to various lending agencies. All deferment loan forms should be submitted to the National Student Clearinghouse directly.  Barry does not supply this information directly to lending agencies.

The Clearinghouse asks that if the student receives a collections letter from a servicer, the student do the following:

Call the lending agency to see if a deferment form was received between the time the Clearinghouse supplied the information and the lending agency sent the collection letter.

If after calling the servicer, it still appears that the deferment has not been processed, the student may call the Clearinghouse at (703) 742-7791 and ask for a "Student Service Representative."

The representative will verify the date on which the deferment was certified and mailed, the enrollment status that was certified, and where the forms were sent.

If an emergency exists - for example, the student is 150 days delinquent and being threatened with default - the Clearinghouse will intervene on the student's behalf by faxing another enrollment certification to the servicer. Furthermore, it will work with the servicer to ensure that the form is processed on a high-priority basis.
