  • During periods of deferment

The Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan 在第一次付款后开始计息,并在贷款期间继续计息. You have the option to pay the loan while in school, 但在校期间不需要支付任何利息. Any unpaid interest will be capitalized, or added to the principal loan balance, when repayment starts.


Have to complete a FAFSA verification?

联邦教育部从所有FAFSA提交的材料中挑选出一半进行审查,称为“验证”. 这仅仅意味着他们要求你在FAFSA上列出的学校确认你在表格上输入的信息. 因此, 如果您是受抚养学生,我们可能需要您和您的父母提供信息和文件,例如报表和纳税申报表副本. 这不是税务审计,也不意味着你做错了什么. If we find that anything needs to be updated, we will simply make, or in some cases ask you to make, any needed corrections.
