Direct Loans are low-interest loans for students and parents to help pay for the cost of a student's education. The lender is the U.S. Department of Education rather than a bank or other financial institution. Direct Loans are a form of financial aid and must be repaid with interest.
The Direct Loan Program offers the following types of loans:
Loan Deadlines: Fall 2018- November 2, 2018 SPRING 2019- April 5, 2019
