A subsided loan is need based as determined by your FAFSA. A subsidized loan will be awarded first and does not accrue
interest while in school. Requested loan amounts above the maximum subsided amount will be unsubsidized.
Unsubsidized loans accrue interest immediately. There are also lifetime and program limits of subsided usage. For more
information, please contact your Financial Aid Advisor.
Revised Spring 2018
You have the right to cancel all or a portion of the loan and to request that Durham Technical Community College return
the loan proceeds to the holder of the loan; however, if you have already received your net difference (refund) check or
direct deposit, the College is not responsible for returning the funds. If the College returns loan funds that were used to
pay your account balance, you will be responsible for immediate payment of the account balance that the return of
funds creates. Your cancellation request must be received by the Financial Aid Office by completing a Loan Adjustment
Form within 30 days.
