Student loans deferred brought score down
My credit score has gone significantly down within the past month. I'm paying down my credit card but the hit seems to be from my student loans which my loan services placed in an in-school deferment since I recently returned to school. Student loans should not effect your credit score unless late payments or default so I'm confused as to why credit karma has dropped my score. Has anyone else experienced this? My loan servicer noted the account as payment deferred.
