Loan Deferments

The student status of postdocs at Stanford makes them eliglible for loan deferment. Stanford University provides free enrollment certifications that can be attached to any lenders form as proof of student status.

Stanford participates in quarterly electronic uploads to the National Student Clearinghouse. These uploads are automatic and require no action on your part. If you experience difficulty with your enrollment being reported correctly to the National Student Clearinghouse, you should submit a HelpSU ticket at Please use Request Category: Central Offices and Request Type: Registrar.

Loan deferment forms that require institutional signatures may be dropped off at the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.  The Office of Postdoctoral Affairs is also the institutional contact at Stanford University for the NIH-Loan Repayment Program.
