There are 2 categories of Federal Student Aid: Grants and Loans

Grants are money that does not have to be repaid. There are several types of grants available through the U.S. Department of Education and other sources.

Grant: Undergraduates with financial needs can receive a Federal Pell Grant for up to 12 semesters (or a total of 6 years).

Loans are borrowed money for college or career school that must be repaid. There are several types of loans available through the U.S. Department of Education:

Direct Subsidized Loans: For undergraduates who have financial needs. The U.S. Department of Education pays the interest while the borrower is in school and during grace and deferment periods.

Direct Unsubsidized Loans: For all undergraduate students. The borrower is responsible for all interests.
