Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
Direct Unsubsidized Stafford
The Federal Direct unsubsidized Stafford Loan is available to undergraduate and graduate students. Eligible amounts vary, please refer to the link shown below.
These loans are funded by the Federal Government and can be used to assist you in meeting your educational costs. You can borrow both your established “unmet” need as well as your calculated self-help figure. Unlike the Federal Direct Subsidized Stafford Student Loan, interest does accrue and is added to the principal of the loan. Interest only payments can be made while you are enrolled in school. If you wish to apply for a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Student Loan, you must first complete the FAFSA and establish calculated need.
