Graduate/Professional Students - Stafford Loan Eligibility
Only the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford loan will be available for Graduate and Professional students for the 2012 -2013 academic year. Due to Federal law, Graduate and Professional students are no longer eligible for the Subsidized Stafford loan. This new law is effective for loan periods that begin on or after July 1, 2012.
The total combined annual Stafford loan limit of $20,500 for Graduate students did not change. Graduate and Professional students may borrow the amount that they would have received in Subsidized Stafford loan in Unsubsidized Stafford loan. For example, a Graduate student who in previous years received an $8,500 Subsidized Stafford loan and a $12,000 Unsubsidized Stafford loan will now receive $20,500 in Unsubsidized Stafford loan.
