  • After you graduate, leave school, or drop below half-time enrollment, you will have a six-month grace period before you are required to begin repayment, which may allow you to settle into a new career before repaying loans.
  • For qualified candidates, GMAT and/or GRE waivers may be available.
  • Find out if your organization offers tuition reimbursement.
