5 Financial Aid Overview: Grants and Loans The US government offers graduate students two loan options: Unsubsidized Federal Direct Student Loan This loan begins to accrue interest immediately, and you will need to make interest payments even while you are studying. The interest rate for this loan as of September 2014 is 5.41% for graduate students. Graduate PLUS Loan In addition to completion of the FAFSA, Graduate PLUS loans require a credit history check similar to a private loan. Payments are deferred until the end of your program as long as you maintain a half-time course load. Once you graduate or drop below half-time, there is a six-month grace period before you need to begin repayment. This loan has a fixed interest rate of 6.41% as of September Borrowing Limits Graduate students who are at least half time may borrow up to $10,250 per semester through the Federal Direct Student Loan. If you wish to borrow additional funds through the Graduate PLUS Loan, check with the Office of Financial Aid to determine the amount. The federal government places lifetime borrowing limits on individuals for the Federal Direct Student Loans. Graduate students can currently borrow a maximum of $138,000 through the Federal Direct Student Loan program. For More Information Harrisburg University aims to bring clarity and convenience to the financial aid process.
