ED Relief for Active Duty Military

March 27, 2003

The Department of Education issued a “Dear Colleague Letter” (GEN-03-06) this week that provides loan program guidance for the treatment of students and borrowers who have been called up for active military duty. This letter, similar to the one issued after September 11, 2001, authorizes administrative relief for students and borrowers affected by the military mobilizations. Specific provisions are made for borrowers with Federal Family Education Loan, William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan, and Federal Perkins Loan Program loans, including advice on how to handle deferments, refunds, and institutional charges.

For a copy of the letter, see The NACUBO contact is Laurie Quarles, senior policy analyst, at (202) 861-2543 or
