If you plan to withdraw from Southern Virginia, understand that your lender will expect you to start making payments on your loan six months after your last date of attendance at Southern Virginia University. If you are continuing your enrollment at least half-time in a degree program, you should apply for an in-school deferment through your lender. Take the deferment form provided by your lender to the registrar of your new school and follow the necessary procedures. Be sure to follow up with your lender two to three weeks after the beginning of the term to ensure that they have received the updated deferment form.
CAUTION: You may need to complete this step more than once before you are finished with your education. Do not ignore communications from your lender regarding payments due.
Your aid at Southern Virginia University does not transfer to another institution. You must start fresh there by adding the new institution to your FAFSA and working with their financial aid office. Your undisbursed aid at Southern Virginia University will be canceled automatically.
If you are transferring to Southern Virginia, you will need to complete the exiting procedures required of your previous university, then complete the steps required of our Registrar’s Office.
