Rates and Fees
The interest rate for loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2020, and before July 1, 2021 is 2.75%. The origination fee for loans disbursed on or after October 1, 2020 and before October 1, 2021 is 1.057%.
Interest begins to accrue on the date of loan disbursement and continues to accrue during in-school, grace and deferment periods. Interest accrued during in-school, grace and deferment periods may be paid or capitalized. You are not required to make payments until after the completion of in-school and grace periods.
Origination fees are deducted proportionately from each loan disbursement you receive. This means the money you receive will be less than the amount you actually borrow. You're responsible for repaying the entire amount you borrowed and not just the amount you received.
