What if my school closes temporarily because of a natural disaster?

A natural disaster may affect your education payments in these ways:

  • If your school closes temporarily during a term, your payments will continue until the end of the term or for up to 4 weeks, whichever comes first.
  • If your school closes temporarily between terms, your payments will start again when you return to school.
  • If your school stays open but you can’t attend, your payments will stop.

To keep getting payments while your school is closed, continue to verify your enrollment each month.
