If I take a leave of absence, do I have to start repaying my loans?

Not immediately. The Stafford loan has a grace period of 6 months before the student must begin repaying the loan. If you use up your grace period you will have to begin repaying your loan. The loan repayment can again be deferred when you are again enrolled at least half time. However, you agreed to contact your lender if you drop to less than half time.
