SECTION 6: DEFINITIONS „ An authorized certifying official for an In-School Deferment is an authorized official of the school where I am/was enrolled as a full-time or at least half-time student. „ Capitalization is the addition of unpaid interest to the principal balance of my loan. The principal balance of a loan increases when payments are postponed during periods of deferment or forbearance and unpaid interest is capitalized. As a result, more interest may accrue over the life of the loan, the monthly payment amount may be higher, or more payments may be required. The chart below provides estimates, for a $15,000 unsubsidized loan balance at a 9% interest rate, of the monthly payments due following a 12-month deferment. It compares the effects of paying the interest as it accrues, capitalizing the interest at the end of the deferment, and capitalizing interest quarterly and at the end of the deferment. My actual loan interest cost will depend on my interest rate, length of the deferment, and frequency of capitalization. Paying interest during the period of deferment lowers the monthly payment by about $18 and saves about $772 over the lifetime of the loan, as depicted in the chart below. Treatment of Interest Accrued During Deferment Loan Amount Capitalized Interest for 12 Months Principal to Be Repaid Monthly Payment Number of Payments Total Amount Repaid Total Interest Paid Interest is paid $15,000.00 $0.00 $15,000.00 $190.01 120 $24,151.64* $9,151.64 Interest is capitalized at the end of deferment $15,000.00 $1,350.00 $16,350.00 $207.11 120 $24,853.79 $9,853.79 Interest is capitalized quarterly during deferment and at the end of deferment $15,000.00 $1,396.25 $16,396.25 $207.70 120 $24,924.09 $9,924.09 *Total amount repaid includes $1,350 of interest paid during the 12-month period of deferment. „ A deferment is a period during which I am entitled to postpone repayment of the principal balance of my loan(s). The federal government pays the interest that accrues during an eligible deferment for all subsidized Federal Stafford Loans and for Federal Consolidation Loans for which the Consolidation Loan application was received by my loan holder (1) on or after January 1, 1993, but before August 10, 1993, (2) on or after August 10, 1993, if it includes only Federal Stafford Loans that were eligible for federal interest subsidy, or (3) on or after November 13, 1997, for that portion of the Consolidation Loan that paid a subsidized FFEL Program loan or a subsidized Federal Direct Loan. I am responsible for the interest that accrues during this period on all other FFEL Program loans. „ The Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program includes Federal Stafford Loans (both subsidized and unsubsidized), Federal Supplemental Loans for Students (SLS), Federal PLUS Loans, and Federal Consolidation Loans. „ Forbearance means permitting the temporary cessation of payments, allowing an extension of time for making payments, or temporarily accepting smaller payments than previously scheduled. I am responsible for paying the interest that accrues on my loan(s) during a forbearance. If I do not pay the interest that accrues, the interest may be capitalized. „ The holder of my FFEL Program loan(s) may be a lender, guaranty agency, secondary market, or the U.S. Department of Education.
