Student Loan Pause Ends September 1, 2023.

The Office of Financial Aid at Reynolds wants to remind all student and parent borrowers who may still owe on a federal student loan that the payment pause that was enacted due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be coming to an end. Student loan interest will resume starting on September 1, 2023. Payments will be due starting in October.

  • Unsubsidized loans will begin accruing interest, even if students are enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) at Reynolds.
  • Students currently enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours) can have their loans deferred while attending school.
  • Current and former students and parents with questions regarding their payments should reach out to their loan servicer for additional information and specifically inquire about income-based repayment opportunities and potential eligibility for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program.

Federal student loan payments, interest and collections were suspended in March 2020 as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
