Undergraduate students who demonstrate need, according to the federal need analysis formula, may qualify for a subsidized Direct Loan. The federal government pays the interest on the subsidized loan while the student is enrolled at least half-time. Students who do not qualify for a subsidized Direct Loan may be eligible for an unsubsidized Direct Loan. Connect with your financial aid counselor for more information.
