LFCC Offers Federal Direct Student Loans

Lord Fairfax Community College will offer Federal Direct Stafford Loans beginning with the fall 2011 semester. Federal Direct Stafford Loans are offered through the Department of Education and are being offered as a responsible alternative to private borrowing.

Direct loans are intended to help our students and their families offset the rising cost of college tuition. Currently, LFCC offers several types of financial aid to our students including grants, scholarships, and work study programs. We are excited to now be able to offer Federal Direct Stafford loans as well for those students who need additional financial aid to meet their educational expenses. Stafford Loans have lower interest rates, longer repayment terms, deferment and forbearance options as well as early loan forgiveness for graduates working in public service.

Tuesday, 7/12 at Fauquier Campus           noon-1pm           Room TBD
