Forbearance Information

FORBEARANCE is available for all Perkins Loans. If a borrower is financially unable to make the required payment on a loan, he or she may request the school grant "forbearance." Forbearance is the temporary cessation of payments, allowing an extension of time for making payments, or accepting smaller payments than were previously scheduled.

When Gonzaga receives the borrower's written request and supporting documentation, we grant the borrower forbearance for a period of up to one year at a time. The forbearance may be renewed, but the periods of forbearance collectively may not exceed a total of three years for your Perkins Loans.

If you currently need a forbearance on your loan please complete and return the attached form. Click here to go to Forbearance Form.
