Students Borrowing Summer, Fall, and Spring Loans

All students have an academic year for awarding loans. If you are enrolled in the Summer and plan on taking out Federal Direct Loans, then your academic year may begin in the Summer and continue through the Fall. Spring will be a separate period. If you are applying for an alternative loan or Graduate PLUS Loan, make sure your loan period matches the loan period for your unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan.
