If you are a student in the United States and have received federal loans do you have to actively defer paying back the loaned money while you are in school or are payments automatically deferred until you graduate as an undergrad? I can't find information on the financial aid site.
It's automatically deferred until you graduate iirc.

If you're a student or prospective student then you can call the university cashiers office and they'll know all about that.

My wife says that it is automatically "deferred" until you graduate as an undergraduate as long as you are more than half-time student, ie more than 12 credits per semester/quarter.

We have a federal loan for her at the moment so she would know
My God, it's full of stars!
As I recall, half the loan's interest is subsidized, and the other half is deferred until the grace period, typically 6 months after your education is done, is over.
