If you are seeking a federal loan to pay for college, get information on the Federal Direct Loan Program (FDLP) and Federal Perkins Loan Program in the links to the left. Both of these programs currently offer loans to new borrowers. Keep in mind that there is never an application fee for a federal education loan.
If you already borrowed to pay for college, you may be repaying federal loans made under one or more of these programs. You can obtain information about your federal loans through the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) website. Note that you will need your Federal Student Aid (FSA) ID to access the site.
