There is a 3 year interest subsidy for people that are under the REPAYE student loan repayment program.

I have about 150k left on my student loan balance and I have an 80k income.

My employer just approved payment for my MBA. I will be taking 6 credits per semester, therefore my student loans will go into deferment. I am currently on the REPAYE program. Will the interest still be subsidized during this period even though I am not required to make payments?

I would just use up the 3 years of subsidy and then consolidate your loans after you get your MBA. It will reset the 3 year clock.

I wasn't aware that consolidation would restart the clock. Thanks!

Is there a good cite for this? Is it BC the loans technically become a new loan? I would think if the 3 yr clock restarts so would deferment time etc.

Are we talking about a studentloans.gov reconsolidatiion? Or a private one?
