NSLDS Deferment Codes Update
The MR Deferment Type Code is a new reporting code for Military Reservists, National Guard members, and members of such forces in retired status, who are called or ordered to active duty. NSLDS anticipates that the MR Deferment Type Code will be available for use in April 2008. Additionally, NSLDS has removed the date restrictions associated with the MO Deferment Type Code to accept any FFEL program loan with the MO Deferment Type Code regardless of first disbursement date. Additional information about these changes can be found in the March 18, 2008 NSLDS Technical Update.
