Types of Loans
Federal Direct Stafford Loans
The Federal Direct Stafford loan program allows students to borrow low-cost educational loans from the federal government. To be eligible for a Direct Stafford loan, students must be enrolled at least 6 hours. Repayment of these loans begins 6 months after students leave school or fall below half time enrollment.
There are two types of Federal Direct Stafford loans: subsidized and unsubsidized. For detailed information about Federal Direct Stafford loans, visit the U.S. Department of Education.
- Subsidized Loans (Undergraduates Only)
Federal Subsidized Direct Stafford loans are need based loans. They are subsidized in that the federal government pays the interest on the loan until repayment begins.
- Unsubsidized Loans
Federal Unsubsidized Direct Stafford loans are not need based. Interest begins accruing from the date of first disbursement. You can choose to pay the interest quarterly while in school, or you can allow it to accumulate and be capitalized when repayment begins.
FTCC has teamed up with Solutions at ECMC to answer all of your student loan repayment questions. Solutions is a service of the non-profit organization ECMC and is dedicated to helping students manage educational loans. Their resources are available to you free of charge. To contact a Solutions Student Loan Repayment Advisor, you can email or web chat or call them at 1-877-331-3262. (NOTE: ECMC’s website may not be ADA compliant).
Department of Education Student Loan Repayment Estimator
The Department of Education provides a student loan repayment estimator to help students plan for loan repayment: Loan Repayment Estimator
If students choose to use an outside lender, FTCC is prohibited from selecting or recommending any specific outside lenders to students. Students can search for a complete list of national lenders who participate in the Federal Stafford Loan Programs through the Department of Education website at www.ed.gov.
William D Ford Federal Direct Loan Program
A Federal Direct Subsidized Loan is made by the Department of Education to students enrolled at least half time (six (6) credit hours at FTCC) whom demonstrate financial need. Financial need is determined based on the information the student submits on their Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) application. Students may borrow up to $3,500 per academic year as a freshman (less than 31 credit hours earned) and $4,500 per academic year as a sophomore (31 or more credit hours earned). The federal government pays the interest while the student is in school at least half time, during the six-month grace period and during all deferment periods for the Federal Direct Subsidized Loan. If a student requests a Federal Direct Subsidized Loan, based on financial need and academic eligibility, the Financial Aid Office will award the maximum amount authorized. Students may decline either part or the entire award amount if so desired.
Other Types of Aid
Short Term Loans for Tuition, Fees and Books
Short Term Loans for Tuition, Fees and Books
Students who are enrolled at least half-time may borrow funds on a 90-day note to cover cost of tuition and fees up to a maximum of 12 credit hours or up to a maximum of $500.00 for required textbooks until funds are exhausted. Supplies are not covered under this loan program.
The student must be in good financial standing with the College. Based upon the discretion of the Financial Aid Office, a student may be awarded a short term loan for both tuition and fees and textbooks.
