Columbus State wants to help you keep your student loan debt low. Consider your tuition, fees, and your personal budget when deciding
how much loan money to request. You can consult with a Columbus State representative at the locations listed at the top of this form, or by
phone at 614-287-5353, if you would like help determining how much loan money you will need.
Direct Subsidized Loan: Interest is paid by the Federal government while you are enrolled at least half-time (6 hours or more).
Direct Unsubsidized Loan: You are responsible for the interest which begins at the time the loan money is sent to CSCC. Borrowing this
type of loan increases the amount you will need to repay. See www.studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/loans
for details on Federal Direct Loans.
Step 1: Review the Annual Federal Student Loan Limits chart below to help determine how much aid you’re eligible to request.
Step 2: Enter the total amount you’re requesting for each semester. Include already accepted loan amounts OR write $0 if you wish to
cancel any semester of Federal Student Loans.
Columbus State will meet as much of your total loan request as possible with subsidized funds and will offer unsubsidized funds as
necessary to complete your loan request.
Step 3: In 2-4 business days check your Financial Aid offer in Financial Aid Self-Service to view/accept/decline loan amounts. If you
requested additional loan funds, you are required to review the loans and take action to accept or decline the new loan in Financial
Aid Self-Service.
In the spaces below, enter the total whole dollar amount of Federal Loans you are requesting for each semester. Make sure to include
amounts already accepted/awarded/received.**

Do not use “Max” when requesting an amount use whole numbers only. Forms with “max” as an amount will NOT be processed. A new form would need to
be submitted.
By checking this box, I decline any Unsubsidized Loan money needed to meet my total loan request. I understand this could result
in a smaller loan amount.
