FEDERAL STUDENT LOAN PROGRAMS
Subsidized & Unsubsidized Loans
With Stafford Unsubsidized Loans the interest is not subsidized; you must either pay the interest monthly or you may elect to have it added to your loan principal ("capitalized"). Students whose income is too high to qualify for a Pell Grant or a Subsidized Stafford Loan may be eligible for a Stafford Unsubsidized Loan.
Students who are not eligible for grants may be eligible for both Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans to pay for their educational expenses. However, it is advisable for students to keep borrowing to a minimum at the community college level, as many students will need to borrow more when they continue their education at a university.
