Important Changes to the Federal Direct Loan Program
Federal Student Loan Interest Rates have changed effective July 1, 2013. Interest rates on student loans are now tied to the 10-year Treasury note plus 2.05 percentage points for undergraduates, and plus 3.6 percentage points for graduate student loans. Parent and Grad PLUS loans are at plus 4.6 percentage points. These rates will vary on a yearly basis based on the legislation that was passed. The new interest rates for 2013-2014 are listed below and are subject to change for subsequent years based on variable rate increases:
Undergraduate Direct Student Loans
Graduate Direct Student Loans
- Graduate PLUS-6.41%
Parent Direct Loans
- Parent PLUS-6.41%
Subsidized Loan Eligibility Limit
There is now a maximum eligibility period which affects Direct Subsidized Loan Eligibility for 1st time borrowers ON or AFTER July 1, 2013.There is now a limit on the maximum period of time (measured in academic years) that you can receive Direct Subsidized Loans. In general, you may not receive Direct Subsidized Loans for more than 150% of the published length of your program. This is called your “maximum eligibility period”. You can usually find the published length of any program of study in your school’s catalog.
For example, if you are enrolled in a 4-year bachelor’s degree program, the maximum period for which you can receive Direct Subsidized Loans is 6 years (150% of 4 years = 6 years). If you are enrolled in a 2-year associate degree program, the maximum period for which you can receive Direct Subsidized Loans is 3 years (150% of 2 years = 3 years).
Your maximum eligibility period is based on the published length of your current program. This means that your maximum eligibility period can change if you change programs. Also, if you receive Direct Subsidized Loans for one program and then change to another program, the Direct Subsidized Loans you received for the earlier program will generally count against your new maximum eligibility period. For additional information and examples, please review the official announcement from the US Department of Education.
