William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program

William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans (Direct Loans) are guaranteed federal student loan programs that include federal subsidized and unsubsidized loans and the federal PLUS (parent loan) programs. Direct Loans are awarded as part of the financial aid package if the student has requested loans on the FAFSA. First-time borrowers must complete a loan entrance interview and sign a loan master promissory note. First-time borrowers must also wait 30 days after the beginning of the semester before funds are available.

First Year Undergraduate, Dependent Student maximum eligibility for combined subsidized and unsubsidized loans is $3,500.

First Year Undergraduate, Independent Student maximum eligibility for combined subsidized and unsubsidized loans is $7,500.

Second Year Undergraduate, Dependent Student maximum eligibility for combined subsidized and unsubsidized loans is $4,500.

Second Year Undergraduate, Independent Student maximum eligibility for combined subsidized and unsubsidized loans is $8,500.

All students are eligible for $2,000 in an unsubsidized loan, which is in addition to the above amounts at each grade level.

The maximum amounts may be awarded as a combination of subsidized and unsubsidized federal loans. Dependent students whose parents are unable to borrow a Federal PLUS loan may borrow an additional $4,000 per year in unsubsidized loans. All students must pay the interest on the portion that is unsubsidized while in school and during any grace or in-school deferment periods, unless they elect to have the interest added to principal (capitalization). Having the interest capitalized will mean larger payments when repayment begins.

Federal Direct Loans have an origination fee of 2% with a rebate of 1.5% that will be deducted from the loan amount. The effective loan fee is 0.5% but is subject to change. The interest rate for 2009-10 is fixed for all subsidized loans at 5.6% with a cap of 8.25%. Unsubsidized loans have a fixed interest rate of 6.8%, capped at 8.25%. Loan principal and interest payments do not begin until six months after the student graduates or ceases to be enrolled at least half-time, and, under the standard repayment plan, must be completed no later than 10 years from that date (excluding periods of deferment and forbearance).

The Federal PLUS program allows parents of dependent undergraduates to borrow federal loan money to help pay the cost of their children's college expenses. Eligible parents may borrow amounts not to exceed the difference between the student's cost of attendance and all other financial aid the student will receive. The Federal PLUS Loan interest rate is fixed at 7.9%, with a cap of 9%. Federal PLUS borrowers are subject to a credit check and the repayment period for PLUS Loans begins sixty days after the second loan disbursement with a standard repayment period of 10 years.

Step 2 – SAR Review

  • After completing the FAFSA, you should receive your Student Aid Report (SAR) within 2-4 weeks. If you provided an e-mail address the SAR will be sent to your e-mail address within 2-3 days.

Step 3 – Verification

  • If your file is selected for verification, you will be asked to complete a Verification Worksheet and provide additional documentation.
  • Please supply the requested material promptly in order to speed up the processing of your financial aid file.
  • If you do not receive a letter from the Financial Aid Office within 1-2 weeks after receiving your SAR, please contact a Financial Aid Representative.

Students wishing to receive a Student Loan

  • Notice: Students who wish to receive student loans must request the loan when completing the verification Data Sheet. You may also request the loan by contacting your Financial Aid Representative.
  • If the student is eligible for the loan, it will be added to the award. The student needs to complete a Loan Eligibility Information form with their Financial Aid Representative.
  • Before a student loan can pay to your account, first time borrowers will need to complete an Entrance Interview at . First time borrowers will also need to sign a Master Promissory Note at (Please wait 24 – 48 hours after completing the Loan Eligibility Information form to complete the Master Promissory Note.) This promissory note is valid for ten academic years.

Step 4 – Award

  • After returning the requested verification information to the Financial Aid Office, you should receive an Award Letter in approximately 2-4 weeks.
  • If you do not receive your award letter within 2-4 weeks, inquire with the Financial Aid Office.
  • Once you receive your award letter, review it carefully and read the accompanying material.
  • Return your completed award letter to the Financial Aid Office.

Step 5 – Payment

  • After you register for classes you will receive a Billing Invoice.  Be sure to follow the directions on your invoice.
  • If you have a positive balance on your billing invoice, you will need to make payment arrangements or inquire about the status of your financial aid.
  • If you have a negative balance, this indicates that you will be receiving a financial aid refund check, which is financial aid that is leftover after your bill is paid.
  • Notice:  You must contact the Business Office regarding your bill, no matter what your balance is.
Reminder:  You must reapply for financial aid by renewing the FAFSA yearly.  Beginning with the 2017-2018 award year the FAFSA will be available each October 1st.
At any point throughout the financial aid process you may speak with a Financial Aid Representative for more information (Financial Aid).
