Graduate Teaching Assistantships

Federal Stafford Loans
The Federal Stafford Loan is available to students who are enrolled at least half-time and demonstrate financial need. Financial need is determined by subtracting the expected family contribution (calculated from income information on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid–FAFSA) from the estimated cost of attendance. The Federal Government pays the interest while you are enrolled at least half-time. Stafford Loans cannot exceed your financial need or the $8,500 annual loan limit for graduate students. The Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan is also available to students, however, financial need is not required to be eligible for this loan. You must pay the interest on the loan during in-school periods, the grace period and any deferment period. The combined amounts borrowed under the Stafford and Unsubsidized Stafford Loan programs cannot exceed the cost of attendance or the $18,500 annual loan limit for graduate students. The FAFSA must be processed prior to applying for these loans. Forms are available at One-Stop Student Services.
