Doctoral loan and previous student loanWatch
I am starting a part-time doctorate in October and am hoping to apply for a doctoral loan. Recently, the outstanding balance from my previous student loans from 1993-1996 was cancelled and I wondered if this would have an effect on my application?
What do you mean by cancelled?
Thanks - I'm not behind in payments - they were just written off after 25 years as I hadn't earned enough to repay them all as I had deferred some years. I know if I was in arrears that would be a problem but I haven't been able to find anything about what happens if the first loans are written off. Maybe there aren't many people as old as me applying for doctoral loans!!!
