A Subsidized Stafford loan does not accrue interest during school, while the Unsubsidized loan does accrue interest. You are eligible for Stafford loans as long as you are registered for 6 hours in a given term. Payments on both loans are deferred as long as you are enrolled half time, which is 6 hours on the graduate level.
Your financial aid is based upon the number of hours that you are registered for. If you drop a class before the drop/add date your financial aid and charges will be adjusted accordingly. If you drop a class after the drop/add period….How does this work in the BO?
You will need to complete a refund request form. Please note there will be more than one disbursement within a semester. If your classes begin in different sub-terms, then your Spring I class may disburse in January, while Spring II may disburse in March.
Additionally, all required documents must be completed before we can process your aid. Please allow 14 days after the drop/add period for your refund to be processed.
