Mandatory loan deferment hurting my score
I started my Masters Degree, I have been paying on my student loans for my Bachelors for some time now. However, since I am now a "student" again, My loan company stated that my Loans must go into deferment status even if I want to keep paying on them... Took my score down about 20pts ?? Due to all my loans now being in "deferred" status... will my credit stay down until I exit "deferred" status (i.e., after I graduate?) .

Deferred loans don't hurt your credit. Once they go into repayment, it shouldn't change unless you miss a payment.
