FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid)
Federal Code # for SBU: 002817 Graduate Student Loan Request Form Graduate Cost Sheet Calculator
The Federal Direct Loan program allows graduate students to borrow up to $20,500 a year without demonstrating financial need. Applicants must file the FAFSA (note: grad students file as independent) and SBU's Student Loan Request Form to receive the loan. Starting in July 2012, new Graduate Stafford loans are not eligible for subsidized interest. This means that interest on the loan principal will accrue while the grad student is enrolled. The exception to this is that students pursuing a program leading to state-issued teacher certification may receive an interest subsidy. The interest rate on the Graduate Stafford loan is 5.41% at this time.
Loan repayment begins six months after the borrower ceases study or drops below half-time status.
