The Federal Direct Loan Program provides low-interest loans to students to assist with educational expenses. It is federally guaranteed, which means you do not need to pass a credit check to obtain funding through this program. There are three minimum criteria that a student must meet to receive a Direct Loan:1. The borrower must be a United States citizen or national, or an eligible non-citizen2. The borrower must not be in a current "default" status on a previous federal education plan3. The borrower must not have exceeded the aggregate Federal Direct Loan limit of $57,500 for an independent student or $31,000 for a dependent studentIf you meet these minimum criteria, you are eligible to borrow through the Direct Loan Program. Your Financial Aid Award Letter will indicate specifically the amount that you are eligible to borrow. There are two types of Federal Direct Loans, subsidized and unsubsidized.
The Federal Direct Subsidized Loan is awarded to students who demonstrate financial need based on the information provided on the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal Direct Subsidized Loans do not begin accruing interest until six months after a student graduates from the university or withdraws early for any reason.
The Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan is awarded to students who may not be eligible for all or part of the subsidized loan. Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loans will begin to accrue interest once disbursed; however, the student is not required to make payments on the loan (principle or interest) until he or she graduates from the university or withdraws early for any reason. The interest rate is currently fixed at 6.8 percent and is the same for all borrowers.
To receive a financial aid award, you must first make sure that Capital University has received your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Make sure you have added Capital's school code (00302300) to your FAFSA so that we can access the information. Once this is done, you will need to complete the financial aid worksheet. If you are a non-degree student, you should complete a Non-Degree Statement of Purpose form. Once the Financial Aid Office has received all the required paperwork, a financial aid award will be processed for you. Your award will include all federal and state aid for which you are eligible. You will receive two emails when your award is able to be viewed in WebAdvisor. One email will include your log-in name and a separate email will contain your initial password to the WebAdvisor system. If you decide not to use any portion of your financial aid, you must notify the Financial Aid Office by sending an email from your Capital email address indicating how much of each award you would like to decline. Once you view your financial aid award and determine that you are going to use student loans, you must complete an entrance counseling session as we as a master promissory note. Both can be completed at www.studentloans.gov. All financial aid funds will be disbursed directly to Capital and placed onto your student account in order to pay any balance you may have. If you have excess funds available to you after your tuition and any fees are paid, you can submit a refund request form with the Student Accounts Office to have any excess funds disbursed to you.
The 2012-2013 tuition rate for Capital University's Adult and Continuing Education program is $430 per credit hour.
