US Federal Student Loans
ACU is a ‘Deferment Only’ institution and does not originate and disburse US Federal Student Loans.
ACU can certify deferments for students who have already received US Federal Student Loans. Students who are enrolled on a minimum half-time basis or greater can apply to defer repayments on student loans. You should contact your lender to obtain the appropriate form to be certified by ACU.
Find more information on the US Federal Student Loans website.
US students may still be eligible for private loans whilst studying at ACU.
