Loans

The U.S. Department of Education administers and oversees several loan programs designed to offer low-interest funding to students and their parents who need to borrow money to cover the costs of education - including Federal Direct subsidized and unsubsidized loans, and Federal Direct PLUS loans. These federal loans have fixed interest rates, consumer protections, and flexible repayment options not available with any other loan program. Loans must be accepted through PAWS by the end of the semester in order to be dispersed.

Before You Borrow

It is also important to take starting salaries into account when determining how much student loan to utilize. Take the time to research and utilize resources available to help make a reasonable assumption as to what potential earnings could be in a chosen field or profession.

National Student Loan Data System

Students can view their federal loan history at any time 24/7 through the National Student Loan Data System. You will need your Federal Student Aid ID & password (the same used to sign your FAFSA and Master Promissory Note) to log into the system.
