Determination of the amount and availability of benefits on new loans is generally made on an annual basis and may be subject to change at any time. Benefits on loans, once received by a borrower, remain in effect for the life of those loans as long as the borrower continues to meet the associated eligibility requirements, as permitted by law.

*The on-time benefit starts immediately at repayment and allows you a full year to get on track. During in-school deferment period, Graduate/Professional PLUS Loan borrower automatically receives benefit for on-time payment. The automatic on-time benefit will be cancelled retroactively for any Stafford or PLUS Loan borrower who reaches 210 days past due during the first year of repayment without making a payment or taking any other preventative action to avoid default. A PLUS Loan borrower who reaches 210 days past due at any time during repayment will also be held responsible for repayment of any credits previously applied under the NC Advantage.

**The automatic draft and electronic statement benefit will be cancelled in the event a total of 3 automatic drafts are rejected for insufficient funds.
