Student Loan Deferment Processing
Bellarmine University uses the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) for enrollment and degree verifications. Every month during each academic term, the university submitted a report of students’ enrollment status to the NSC which, in turn, supplies
verification of enrollment to lending agencies.
Most lenders and loan servicing organizations participate in the NSC also participate in our paperless deferment process. With this process, no paper forms need to be completed by either student or schools – the student simply calls his or her servicer
to request a deferment. The servicer then requests the student’s enrollment information from the NSC to verify in-school status.
If your lender needs a paper deferment form processed, submit your form to our Registrar’s Office. Make sure to complete any fields required by the borrower and details where to send the completed deferment request. We forward all In-School Deferment
forms to the NSC. They will confirm your enrollment and send to your lender. Bellarmine University does not provide this information directly to lending agencies. If you registered late or had an exception processed to your term registration, this
information may not be reported until our next NSC submission.
If you receive a collection letter from your servicer, you should:
- Call your lending agency to see if they received a deferment form from the NSC after they sent you the collection letter.
- Ask your lender to verify enrollment or degree information on the NSC’s website at https://www.studentclearinghouse.org/.
