Any combination of subsidized and unsubsidized

Stafford Loans cannot exceed these limits.

The Federal government charges a fee for each loan:

Therefore, the net amount will be slightly less than

the amount applied for. For the fee amount, go to

Freshman and sophomore students are

eligible to borrow an additional $4,000

unsubsidized Stafford Loan if their parent(s) are

denied a Parent PLUS loan.

Junior and senior students are eligible to borrow

an additional $5,000 unsubsidized Stafford Loan

if their parent(s) are denied a Parent PLUS loan.

Repayment of the loan principle is deferred until

six (6) months after you graduate or cease to

be enrolled on at least a half-time basis, which-

ever comes first. The six (6)-month period

between graduation and repayment is considered

the grace period.

Repayment is made on a monthly basis and the

repayment period is typically 10 years, but may

be more.

There is no penalty for prepayment of the loan,

and early repayment of the loan would reduce or

eliminate interest charges.
