Advanced professional training

Student Deferment
Borrowers can qualify for deferment on the basis of advanced professional training for the duration of that training if it is:

  • Intended to further the borrower's knowledge and skills in the health professions discipline for which the loan was received;
  • A prerequisite for professional practice; and
  • An internship or residency program or other full-time training beyond the first professional degree.

A borrower who completes advanced professional training at an institution in a foreign country may be eligible for deferment, provided that the borrower will receive credit towards his or her board certification. It is the school's responsibility to make the final determination in this case.
