With immediate repayments, you pay the lowest cost overall. That's because both principal and interest payments begin one month after your loan is disbursed.
With interest-only repayment, you pay only the accrued interest on the loan while you're in school, rather than letting it increase until after graduation. This option lowers the total cost of the loan compared to the full in-school deferment option. Full principal and interest payments begin six months after graduation, or if you fall below half-time status.
Deferred repayment offers the convenience of no payments if you're enrolled in school at least half time. Payments begin six months after graduation or if you fall below half-time status, which makes it the best option for students who can't pay for their loan while in school.
