Federal Stafford Student Loans (Subsidized)

Moderate interest loans are awarded directly to students by the Department of Education. First-year students may borrow up to $3,500 annually, sophomores up to $4,500 annually and juniors and seniors up to $5,500 annually. These loans are federally guaranteed, and no interest accrues nor is any payment due until six months after the student ceases to be at least a half-time student. Separate application is required.

Federal Work-Study

Awarded to students with financial need who work on campus and who are paid according to hours worked. Awards vary based on amount of need. Students awarded Federal Work-Study are not guaranteed a job, and work-study earnings are not paid in advance, so they cannot be used to pay the direct costs (tuition, room, board) of the semester in which they are awarded.
