Government Loan Options

The federal government has several options to put your education within reach. Although we do not make federal student loans at EPFCU, you can learn more about them below. The first step is for students and parents of dependent undergraduates to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine federal loan eligibility. There are three federal loan options to fit every need:

Stafford Loans

  • The subsidized Federal Stafford Loan is based on financial need. The government pays the interest while you are in school.
  • The unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan is not based on need but family income is a determining factor. You pay all the interest, although you can have the payments deferred until after graduation. Learn more about Stafford Loans.

Parent PLUS Loans

  • Parents and stepparents may borrow for post-secondary education of dependent, undergraduate children.
  • Credit based.
  • Parents can borrow up to the cost of education minus any other financial aid the student is receiving. Learn more about Parent PLUS Loans.
