US Federal Aid

Stafford Loans

Due to the termination of the federal loans subsidy (“Subsidized Loans”) at the graduate level (per the Budget Control Act of 2011), the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan program (Title IV) remains the most popular student loan program available for graduate-level students. Unsubsidized loans are available to every student who completes a FAFSA. Interest begins accruing 120 days from the time of disbursement. However the student is not required to make any payments while in deferment status. These low-interest loans are provided by banks which are subsidized by the Federal Government.

  • Interest Rate and Fee Information
  • Eligibility based on completion of the FAFSA and subject to annual Cost of Attendance budget limitations
  • Graduate-level limit of $20,500 per academic year
  • Payments deferred while enrolled at least half-time (five credits/semester)
  • No prepayment penalties
  • 6-month repayment grace period upon leaving school or dropping below half-time

How to Apply

*Students complete item 3 every year and items 7 and 8 every semester. Items 5 and 6 are only done once for Kairos University.
