Pre-Cancellation Services

In the event that a borrower is working in a field that will qualify him or her for cancellation benefits, that borrower may request pre-cancellation deferment. Deferment allows the borrower to complete the year of service without having to make payments. For most forms of cancellation, a year of service is 12 months of concurrent employment. For cancellation in the teaching fields, a year of service is considered the full academic year.
