FEDERAL DIRECT LOAN PROGRAMS
- Subsidized Federal Direct Loan
Subsidized Federal Direct Loans have a variable interest rate. Eligibility is based on financial need. This is a loan that must be paid back. If you are eligible, you may borrow once per academic year as long as all the required paperwork has been completed. The federal government pays the interest on a Subsidized Federal Direct Loan while you attend school, during the grace period (first six months after you leave school) and during periods of deferment. Your first payment is due six months after you leave school. To get this started, you will need to complete the FAFSA form. You can complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. The school code for Guy’s Academy is 017375.
- Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan
Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loans have a variable interest rate. This is a loan that must be paid back. You are responsible for the interest that accrues on the Unsubsidized Loan while you are in school and during your grace period. Your first payment is due six months after you leave school unless you choose to pay the interest on this loan while you are in school.
- Federal Direct Plus Loan (Parent Loan)
These loans are borrowed by the parents of dependent students. The PLUS loan has a variable interest rate. The parent starts paying on the PLUS loan within 60 days after the loan is fully disbursed.
