What are Direct Student Loans?

Direct Student Loans are funds made available to students and parents to help pay for college. Direct student loans are low-interest loans, and while the lender is the U.S. Department of Education, individuals may work with a private business who releases the funds or directly with the federal government. Direct student loans include subsidized, unsubsidized, and parent-only loans. These loans are simple to apply for, and unlike other forms of financial aid, are not based on financial need. These funds must be paid back after graduation; however, there are payment programs, opportunities to consolidate multiple loans, and loan forgiveness programs for qualifying individuals.
