Direct Loans

Federal direct loans are offered to eligible, degree seeking students who complete the application - the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Any eligible, degree seeking student may obtain a federal direct loan as long as they meet every eligibility requirement for the specific direct loan program. The 'type of direct loan' (subsidized, unsubsidized or PLUS) will be determined when when the FAFSA is processed and the financial aid package is generated.

Note the following:

  • A subsidized direct loan is only available to eligible undergraduate students who have 'unmet need' when the loan is added to their financial aid package
  • Loans are a form of financial aid which must be repaid with interest.
