  • Loan origination fee is 1.072%.
  • Repayment begins 6 months after you graduate, drop below half time, or withdraw. Learn more about managing repayment of your student loans.
  • Subsidized loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2012, and before July 1, 2014 are not eligible for subsidized interest benefits during the six-month grace period after a student graduates or falls below half-time enrollment.
