Loan Programs

Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans:

The Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan program is a federal student loan program that allows Physician Assistant students to borrow $20,500 for each two consecutive terms per borrower based year ($41,000 per 12 month period). The interest rate for loans disbursed between 7/1/16 and 6/30/17 is 5.31% and will be charged from the date of each disbursement. That rate will remain with the loan and will accrue during periods of enrollment, grace, and deferment. The interest rate for loans disbursed between 7/1/17 and 6/30/18 will be determined in early summer of 2017. Direct Lending also deducts a loan fee at the time of each disbursement. The fee for loans first disbursed on or after October 1, 2016 and before October 1, 2017 will be 1.069%. Payment on loans begins six months after graduation or withdrawal.

NOTE: The total outstanding debt a Physician Assistant student can have from all Direct Stafford Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized combined) is $138,500. Outstanding Stafford Loans received from both the FFEL and Direct Loan Programs for undergraduate or graduate education are included in these aggregate totals.

Direct Grad Plus Loans

The interest rate on Direct Grad Plus Loans disbursed between 7/1/16 and 6/30/17 is 6.31% and will be charged from the date of each disbursement. That rate will remain with the loan and will accrue during periods of enrollment, grace, and deferment. The interest rate for Grad Plus Loans disbursed between 7/1/17 and 6/30/18 will be determined in early summer of 2017. Direct Lending also deducts a loan fee at the time of each disbursement. The fee for loans first disbursed on or after October 1, 2016 and before October 1, 2017 will be 4.276%.

The maximum amount a student may borrow is the cost of attendance minus any other financial aid received for that same academic period. A credit check is required for Grad Plus Loans. If you have adverse credit, you could be denied by the lender. If you are denied, you may appeal or you may reapply with a credit-worthy cosigner. Payment begins six months after graduation or withdrawal.  There is no lifetime aggregate limit on Grad Plus loans.
