Types of Student Aid
Federal Pell Grant
A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Generally, Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree. For many students, Pell Grants provide a foundation of financial aid to which other aid may be added.
William D Ford Federal Direct Loan Program
Direct Loans are the Department of Education’s main form of self-help aid for students. Under the Direct Lending Program, the funds for your loan are lent to you from the Department of Education.
Types of Direct Loans Available
Direct Subsidized Loan
A subsidized loan is awarded on the basis of financial need. You will not be charged interest before you begin repayment or during authorized periods of deferment. The federal government “subsidizes” the interest during these periods.
Direct Unsubsidized Loan
An unsubsidized loan is not awarded on the basis of need. You will be charged interest from the time the loan is disbursed until it is paid in full. If you allow the interest to accumulate, it will be capitalized – that is, the interest will be added to the principal amount of your loan and additional interest will be based upon the higher amount.
Direct PLUS Loan
These loans are made to graduate or professional students and to parents of expenses not covered by other financial aid.
Direct Consolidation Loan
Direct consolidations loans allow you to combine all of your eligible federal student loans into a single loan with a single loan servicer.
Students are encouraged to apply for one type or a combination of the types of financial aid available.
