Federal Direct Loans
Federal Direct PLUS Loans: The Federal Direct PLUS Loan is available to assist parents, guardians and graduate students in borrowing all or a portion of the cost of education. The PLUS loan offers several benefits available to borrowers including deferment of repayment until after the student graduates (or drops below half-time enrollment status). In addition, repayment calculators are available to assist families in determining their monthly payments.
Federal Direct Stafford Loans: The Direct Stafford Loan program provides low-interest loans to students to assist with paying for educational expenses. Regardless of whether or not a student was offered a federal student loan in his or her initial financial aid package, U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible to borrow either a subsidized or unsubsidized Stafford Loan. Contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss eligibility and awarding.
Federal Perkins Loan
The Federal Perkins Loan is a campus-administered federal program that provides low-interest loans to students with exceptional need. Interest does not accrue while the student is enrolled at least half-time or during grace or deferment periods. Contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss eligibility and awarding.
Brown University Institutional Loans
