A Federal Pell Grant, unlike a loan, does not have to be repaid. Federal Pell Grants are need based aid, determined by the FAFSA results. Pell Grants are awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or a professional degree.
Loans made to eligible undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need to help cover the costs of school. Interest does not accumulate on the subsidized while the student is enrolled at school.
Loans made to eligible undergraduate students. Unlike the subsidized loans, the student does not have to demonstrate financial need to be eligible for an unsubsidized loan. Interest begins to accumulate once the loan has been disbursed.
Parent PLUS Loan
The Federal Parent PLUS loan is a credit-based loan, available to parents (biological, adoptive, or in some cases, stepparent) of dependent undergraduate students, to help for the students educational expenses. PLUS loan borrowers cannot have adverse credit history and must meet the general eligibility requirements for federal student aid. PLUS loans are not based on need. They can be combined with other financial aid resources and cannot exceed the student’s cost of attendance.
