What are Unsubsidized Loans?

Unsubsidized loans are one such option that can help students pursue their academic dreams. Even these loans are federal student loans available to both undergraduate and graduate students.

Unsubsidized loans start accruing interest as soon as they are disbursed, including while the borrower is in school and during deferment periods.

Unsubsidized loans generally have high borrowing limits compared to Subsidized loans.

Start by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The FAFSA is available online at  fafsa.ed.gov and collects information about your financial situation. Be sure to include the schools you’re interested in attending on your FAFSA.
