Financial Aid : Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a subsidized loan and an unsubsidized loan?
An unsubsidized loan has interest accumulating on it while the student is in school and the student is responsible for all interest accrued. A subsidized loan does not have interest accumulating while the student is in school. Both loans start repayments when the student has not been enrolled for six months, due to graduation or not enrolling.
