FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the deferment period?

For Full-Time Programs ONLY: The deferment period is defined as the time you are attending the course, plus an additional two months after completion. These additional two months are considered your repayment grace period.Interest only payments are required during the deferment period. After the deferment period ends, payments of principal and interest are required.

Please note that we are not currently accepting applications for CodeCraft School programs.

How much are interest payments during the deferment period?

For Full-Time Programs ONLY: For a 36-month $10,000 loan, the interest only monthly payment is approximately $78. For a 60-month $10,000 loan, the interest only monthly payment is approximately $95.

Note that even though the 60-month loan has higher interest payments during the deferment phase, it has lower monthly payments during the 60 months full repayment phase than the 36-month loan. Please see terms in "More Info On Terms" above.
