The Office of Student Accounts will place a hold on any delinquent student loan accounts. A hold will prevent the student from registering and receiving all services from SUA including release of transcript, grades, and alumni service. Account balance and hold information is available through the loan servicer for Soka Loans and through the lender for federal loans.
Delinquent loans will include accounts past due and/or accounts placed with a collection agency. Delinquent loans will be reported to credit bureaus, and borrowers will be responsible for any collection costs including but not limited to agency fees, attorney's fees, court costs, and other fees relating to collection of the loan.
A borrower who is enrolled at least half-time in an eligible institution may defer their student loan repayment. During this in-school deferment, interest will not accrue. To qualify for the deferment, the student must be enrolled as a regular studeent in an eligible instituion of higher education or a comparable institution outside of the United States approved by the Department of Education for deferment purposes.
To be considered for this deferment, SUA Loan Deferment Form must be completed and submitted to ECSI with enrollment verification.
A borrower who does not qualify for in-school deferment may file for forbearance or economic hardship deferment. SUA Loan Forbearance & Economic Hardship Request Form must be completed with appropriate and complete documentation. This form should be submitted to the Office of Student Accounts at SUA for review and approval. All incomplete application or missing documents will be returned. Please note that deferment will only take effect from the date of approval.
