Federal Student Loans

Federal student loans are funds borrowed from the federal government designed to help students pay for college. They are funds that must be repaid with interest with favorable interest rates and do not have to be repaid until after you graduate or drop below half-time enrollment. Two kinds of Federal Student Loans are available:

  • Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans
    Loans awarded based on financial need. You will not be charged (interest) while you are in school or, if applicable, for a six-month grace period once you graduate or drop below half-time enrollment.

  • Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans
    Loans not awarded based on financial need. You will be charged interest from the time the loan is disbursed until the time the loan is paid in full. You do not need to repay the loan while you are in school or, if applicable, for a six-month grace period once you graduate or drop below half-time enrollment.
