Verification of Candidacy

Form (pdf) | Instructions (pdf)

This form is used to verify that you are an official career missionary candidate with a sending agency/Christian organization, and are taking the necessary steps toward making your way overseas.

It must be completed and submitted by a representative from your organization. (You cannot complete and submit the form yourself.)

The correct completion and submission of this form to our office will result in your loan being put into deferment for no more than a 12 month period. No payments will be needed, nor interest accrued on the loan amount.


Verification of Progress toward Deployment

  • This form is used to verify that you are making progress toward returning to your ministry or home outside North America (if your return is delayed beyond the 9 month grace period that begins upon your graduation).
  • It must be completed and submitted by a representative from your organization. (You cannot complete and submit the form yourself.)

Verification of Service

Form (pdf) | Instructions (pdf)

Verification of Academic Enrollment

Form (pdf) | Instructions (pdf)

    It should be used if you are still in the process of earning loan forgiveness when you decide to pursue this additional advanced degree.
