Lender policy requires students to be enrolled at least half-time in order to qualify for deferment.
To lenders, the term “enrolled” refers to being actively involved in coursework. If you only take classes during one 8-week sub-term, your loans will be taken out of deferment as soon as those classes end. If you enroll for the spring B-term (first 8-weeks), your loans will remain in deferment from January to March, but will be taken out of deferment the day after your B-term classes end. If at all possible, try to register for classes during both the B and D sub-terms each semester. By doing so, you will ensure that your loans remain in deferment for the entire duration of a semester.
Liberty utilizes the National Clearinghouse update to inform lenders of your enrollment. This process takes up to 6 weeks to fully update. If necessary, in order to expedite the verification process you may request a verification letter to be sent to your lenders by clicking the link below, titled “Student Enrollment Verification Request.” This will prompt you to log in using your liberty email address as the username. Fill out the online form and a verification letter will be processed for you within 48 hours.
We are unable to send verification of current enrollment to your lender until the add/drop period passes, but you may submit the request once you have registered for the upcoming term. We will hold the request and send the letter to your lender(s) after the add/drop period. For online students, letters will be sent the day after classes begin. For resident students, letters will be sent the Monday of the second week of classes.
Students above age 18 are required to be enrolled full-time in order to remain on parent/guardian insurance plans. If you need a verification letter for insurance purposes, please submit a request via the request link below.
