As outlined in the promissory note(s) which you signed for
your RPI Student Loan(s), the repayment procedures and your
obligations are as follows:
Simple interest of 9% per year on the total loan or unpaid
balance of the loan commences on the first day of the month
following the date of graduation, withdrawal, or leave of
absence from Rensselaer. Repayment is made in quarterly
installments, beginning with the date given on the Exit
Interview Agreement in the sum of at least fifty dollars ($
50.00). The maximum repayment period is therefore determined by
the total amount of your loan (i.e., total loan of $ 200.00 --
four quarterly installments of $ 50.00, plus interest on loan
added to fourth installment -- maximum repayment period is one
year). In no event will the repayment period exceed ten
A full or partial repayment of the loan at any time, or a
payment in excess of the amount due at a given time in
accordance with the repayment schedule, is permissible.
Repayment ahead of schedule is urged, when possible, both to
save interest payments for the borrower and to make the money
available to other needy students.
A RPI Student Loan borrower serving in the Armed Forces of
the United States, the Peace Corps, or VISTA, or attending
another institution of higher education as a half-time student,
may have installments on the principal amount of the loan
deferred, but interest will accrue and be payable. Deferment of
principal payments will be granted up to a maximum of three
years for military, Peace Corps, or VISTA service.
A RPI Student Loan borrower who returns to Rensselaer as a
half-time student may have installments deferred and interest
will not accrue on the loan while he is in attendance.
Requests for deferment must be made to UAS at the time
payment is due and should be accompanied by a letter of
certification of your service or attendance at an institution
of higher education from the appropriate official.
Billing statements will be sent to you by UAS for each
installment. It is your responsibility to notify UAS of any
change in your address.
