Loans


Loans are borrowed money and must be repaid with interest.

The Federal Direct Stafford Loan program is the biggest source of low-interest student loans. Since these loans are not credit-based, most students are eligible.

DIRECT SUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOAN

For students with financial need. Interest is paid by the government while the student is enrolled in school at least half-time.

DIRECT UNSUBSIDIZED STAFFORD LOAN

Interest does accrue on the loan while in schoool.

Annual eligibility is based on the student’s grade level.

For additional information on these loans and the steps to request the loan funds you have been awarded, visit simpsonu.edu/loans.

File your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) starting January 1,2015 for the 2015-2016 academic year. File as early as possible to receive the best award possible. (School Code: 001291)
