Peace Corps Loan Deferment

Postby alexheath1988 » Wed Feb 20, 2013 9:22 pm


I have a question about loan deferment through the Peace Corps. On the Great Lakes website, who is my student loan provider, they have posted the following:

Full-time volunteer
(Peace Corps or ACTION program)
Note: Only available to those with their first loan disbursed before July 1, 1993.
3 year limit Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford and SLS loans

Now, my loans were definitely not disbursed before 1993. However, I know of other students who have had their federal loans deferred by entering into the Peace Corps. Has anyone else had this same problem? Any information would be appreciated.
