Your financial aid package may include federal student loans. In the case of loans, keep in mind that whatever amount you borrow must be paid back with interest. While loans can be a good investment in your future, taking out a federal student loan is a serious obligation.
If you wish to apply for a Federal Student Loan you must first complete the FAFSA. For more information on eligibility, review the Federal Student Guide at Federal Student Aid website.
