Student Loan Deferments

Some student loans from U.S. lending institutions may be eligible for payment deferral during your postdoctoral training. Deferment decisions are made by the loan agency and not by Yale. If your lending institution offers deferments, please request a deferment form from your loan agency or complete the form here and send it to the Office for Postdoctoral Affairs at Unfortunately, we are unable to sign forms that require us to attest that you are an enrolled student at Yale or forms for postdoctoral fellows and postgraduate appointees. For more information on Loan Deferments please visit the Federal Student Aid Site - Student Loan Deferment site.
