Applications for Grants and Loans

To qualify for government grants and loans, you will need to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Notice that the application is FREE, you should never have to pay someone to submit a financial aid application. Grants are usually based on a combination of academic performance and financial need. The type of loans that you will qualify for is based completely on financial need. The two most popular government loans are the Federal Direct Subsidized Loan and the Federal Direct Unsubsidized loan. The subsidized version has no interest while you are in school, but begins to accrue interest once you graduate. Conversely, the unsubsidized version accrues interest as soon as you receive the funds. Always accept a subsidized loan (if you need it!) before an unsubsidized loan. The FAFSA application is available January 1 of each year. Remember that you will have to resubmit your application every year that you are in school. To be safe, check with each institution to verify their financial aid deadline. Many schools have different deadlines to submit this application, but we recommend submitting by March 15 in order to be considered a priority applicant by all schools. Be sure to obtain your parents’ income tax information before starting the application; it is needed in order to complete the process. The earlier your parents can file their taxes in the spring, the sooner you can submit your FAFSA application!

Grant/Loan Tips:

  • Submit your FAFSA by the priority deadline of each school you are applying to. This ensures that you receive the most financial aid that a school is allowed to offer you.
  • Check out the Texas B-On-Time loan program at hhloans.com. Under certain guidelines, this is a loan that is completely forgiven if you graduate “on-time”, meaning you do NOT have to pay it back!
  • The Federal Direct Subsidized loan has no interest while you are in school. The Federal Direct Unsubsidized loan begins accruing interest as soon as you receive the money.
