This page has information on Stafford Loans and other Federal Student Loan Programs.
Federal Stafford Loans: Federal Stafford loans are fixed-rate student loans for undergraduate and graduate students attending college at least half-time.
Stafford loans are the most common and one of the lowest-cost ways to pay for school.
Undergraduate Stafford loans have a low fixed interest rate.
These loans can be used to pay tuition and other school expenses.
The homepage of the U.S. Department of Education's Direct Loan Program provides information on the Direct Loan Program.
Students and parents can explore the site for information about the Direct Loan Program. The Direct Loan site includes helpful publications and tools to help students manage their Direct Loans.
Private student loans are also a college financing option that can help cover additional costs not covered by federal financial aid.
A private student loan can be used to pay up to 100% of the cost of attendance, and cover normal tuition expenses. Private loans are also often used for books, supplies, housing, school fees, transportation, and more.
