Direct Loans are low-interest loans for students and parents to help pay for the cost of a student's education after high school. The lender is the U.S. Department of Education (the Department).
With Direct Loans, you:
If you receive a federal loan, you can only use the money to pay for educational expenses at CLCC. These include: tuition and fees; books, supplies, and equipment; the rental or purchase of a personal computer; room and board; dependent child care expenses; transportation; and miscellaneous expenses.
Federal loans are a better deal than loans from private lenders. Federal student loans generally have lower interest rates that are fixed, generous repayment plans, no repayment penalties, and no credit checks (except for PLUS loans).
You can track your loan history at the National Student Loan Data System. All your federal loan information is reported to NSLDS, where you, your loan servicer, and other authorized users can access it.
