Re: Sallie Mae Deferrment - Dispute or Not?

I don't think it would hurt you, really.  Installment accounts are not a big part of your score.  It 's probably some excuse like it's somehow faster to report a deferment than a paid-off account.  Did this update at its normal time, or is it in between normal updates?  I'd wait until the next update & see what it shows up as.
