Federal Direct Subsidized Loan

How much can I borrow?

Check the Federal Direct Loan Borrowing Chart for the maximum annual and aggregate amounts you may borrow in subsidized loan funds.

If you are not eligible to borrow the full amount you request in Direct Subsidized Loan funds, or you believe you need additional loan funds, you may be able to request some or all the balance as a Direct Unsubsidized Loan. If you are a dependent student, your parents may be able to take out a Direct PLUS Loan for you.

Using your FSA ID, you may access your previous borrowing history from the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) and monitor how close you may be approaching your undergraduate aggregate maximum.

Are there any other limitations on the amount I may borrow?
