Graduate Student Loans

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. All graduate level Stafford Loans as Unsubsidized.

Unsubsidized Stafford Loans are available to all matriculated students enrolled on at least a half-time basis 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. There are other eligibility requirements other than 1/2 time enrollment.

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.
