Federal education loans are available to most students who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and eligible non-citizens, regardless of income. These loans are required by law to provide a range of flexible repayment options and loan forgiveness benefits.
Subsidized loans are for undergraduate students and based on financial need and generally do not accrue interest for the borrower while they are in school.
Unsubsidized loans are for undergraduate students and are not based on financial need. Interest is charged from the day the loan is received.
Parent PLUS Loans
Parent PLUS Loans are not based on financial need and allow parents to borrow money to help pay the expenses of their dependent undergraduate student. Interest is charged from the day the loan is received.
Graduate PLUS Loans
Graduate PLUS Loans are federal loans not based on financial need and available to graduate and professional students to help pay educational expenses. Interest is charged from the day the loan is received.
Students should carefully consider potential debt before accepting loans. Contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions.
