Mission Deferments and Federal Aid
Federal aid is year specific, so any aid not used due to leaving on a mission is lost. Make sure to re-apply at fafsa.gov upon returning.
Loans and Deferments
If you took out a loan prior to your mission, you will go into repayment while on your mission. Please contact your lender directly to notify them of your plans and to ask about repayment options. Most lenders will happily work with you to make arrangements for a minimal or no monthly repayment option while you are away.
Contact information for your lender can be found here. You will need to log in with your FSA ID.
