Why didn't my credit score return to its previous score once student loans became deferred?

Not enough information.  There could have been other changes at play and deferring may not have offset all causes of the scoring change.

Don't expect your score to increase by much.  A deferment excuses you from making student loan payments for a set period of time because of a specific condition in your life -- such as returning to school, economic hardship, or unemployment.

When you defer a loan, that's a small alert to creditors.

I would speculate because you still had that amount you owed.  It was not like you paid it off.  It was just deferred so it shows you owe it.

were there late payments or missed payments? Defferement doesnt erase this...
