Federal Direct Loans can be obtained to pupils whom submit an application for educational funding using the FAFSA.

Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loans

The attention prices are determined each June for brand new loans being designed for the upcoming award year. Each loan could have a fixed rate of interest for the life of the mortgage. These loans are assured by the government that is federal. The FAFSA may be the only application necessary to receive Federal Direct Loans but you must accept your loans on MaineStreet to be able to receive them.

Interest accrual although the pupil is in college is based on the sort of Direct Loan received (subsidized or unsubsidized). Unsubsidized Direct Loans will accrue interest whilst the learning pupil is with in college.
