The loan must be repaid within five (5) years / (60 months) after the earlier of January 1st following the end of the 4th academic year or upon school severance for any reason.
Students are encouraged to promptly pay back loans, and the MCSLF has established an interest free grace period after graduation or leaving school for any reason to January 1st following the end of the 4th academic year or upon leaving school. During this grace period any loan payments are deducted from the outstanding principal of loans. Grace period extensions requests for students that continue their education beyond four years are considered on a case-by- case basis by the MCSLF Board; grace period extension requests may be denied and in no circumstances will the maturity of the note be extended.
Loan repayment plans are tailored to meet student’s financial situation; the MCSLF requires minimum monthly payments of $160 be established by the earlier of January 1st following the end of the 4th academic year or upon school severance prior to the 4th academic year.
Student loan interest is added to the outstanding balance of the loan on an annual basis on January 1 and is calculated based upon 6% of the outstanding December 31 loan balance.
MCSLF currently offers two methods of payment:
- ACH (Preferred for students and MCSLF benefit) – this can be implemented by downloading and completing an ACH form and returning it to MCSLF along with a voided check, if available. Debits (withdraws) from students account will be the 20th of each month and initiated in the month the students indicates on the form.
