The Federal Stafford Student Loan

Through the Federal Stafford Loan program matriculated graduate students enrolled at least half-time may borrow up to $20,500 per year. Students apply by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), indicating that they are willing to accept financial aid in the form of a loan. There are two types of Federal Stafford Loans:

  1. 1. Subsidized: If the student demonstrates need based on the Student Aid Report, the federal government will pay the interest charge while the student is enrolled at least half-time. A Federal Subsidized Stafford loan cannot exceed $8,500 per year. These are 6% fixed interest loans.

  2. Unsubsidized: All matriculated students enrolled on at least a half-time basis may receive a Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan regardless of family income. However, the student will have to pay all interest charges until the loan is fully repaid. These are 6.8% fixed interest loans.

NOTE: Request for student loans must be received at least 30 days prior to the last day of class of the semester for which the loan is requested.
