Federal Financial Aid Policy

Federal Loan Deferment

California Southern University is approved by the United States Department of Education for the deferment of all federal student loans. Students at CalSouthern who qualify are now able to defer all federal loans from their previous education*. Our university will be listed in the next edition of the Directory of Postsecondary Institutions published by the U.S. Department of Education.

Current students at California Southern University who qualify are now able to defer all federal loans from their existing federal loans from previous education institutions.

As CalSouthern continues to serve the working professional student, the university hopes to help potential students pursue their education while reducing the impact of student loans from their previous educational experiences.
