The impact to our students in regards to the Budget Control Act, beginning July 1, 2012.

·         Eliminates the in-school interest subsidy for graduate and professional students.  The total Stafford loans available for students remains at $20,500, but unlike now, qualifying students do not pay interest on $8,500 of the total Stafford loan amount while in school, thus it is subsidized by the government,  students do pay (accrue)  interest on the $12,000 while in school.  The change will be they all pay (accrue) interest on the total 20,500 once the loan is disbursed.

  • Direct Loan Repayment Incentives: Repayment incentives were also eliminated in the final package.  

For Stafford loans, the up-front rebate incentive was equal to 0.5 percent of the loan amount and applied toward the 1 percent loan origination fee. When/if we participate in Grad Plus loans in the future; the up-front interest rebate incentive was 1.5 percent applied toward the 4 percent origination fee for those loans.


An interest rate reduction of 0.25 will continue to be provided to a borrower who agrees to automatically debit electronic payments.
