Understanding Your Student Loans

Stafford loans are available subsidized and unsubsidized. With subsidized Stafford loans, the government will pay the interest during deferment. If the loan is unsubsidized, interest will continue to pile up during deferment periods.

PLUS loans are the only federal loans that require good credit. These loans are taken out by parents for their children in undergraduate programs or graduate students.

The funds for Perkins loans come directly from schools. Schools can hire debt collectors to collect late Perkins loan repayments or transfer the collection responsibilities to the Department of Education.
