Direct subsidized loan:
A direct subsidized federal loan is a guaranteed loan in which the federal government pays the
interest while you are in school.
Subsidized borrowing limitations:
THE LAW: Congress passed a bill Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (“MAP-21”) which
established time limitations on Direct Stafford Subsidized Loans. This new law will be effective for first
time borrowers and borrowers who have paid off their loans and are borrowing again as of July 1, 2013.
This law allows you to receive Direct Stafford Subsidized Loans only within 150% of the length of your
program of study.
WHAT IT MEANS: Once you have reached the end of this limit you are no longer able to receive Direct
Stafford Subsidized Loans. Once a borrower reaches the 150% limit he or she will no longer be eligible for
the interest subsidy on all Federal Subsidized Loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2013.
If in the future you plan on seeking a four-year degree you must subtract eligibility already used.
Changing your degree does NOT reset 150% eligibility.
Enrollment level may influence the calculation of the timeframe used. Examples:
A part-time student (6 credits) who borrows the full amount of the Direct Subsidized Loan
during a period of enrollment that covers a full academic year would have used one-half
of a year against the maximum eligibility period.
A part time student (6 credits) who borrows the full amount of the Direct Subsidized Loan
in a period less than an academic year (Fall only/Spring only) are, on the other hand,
charged a full year against the maximum eligibility period.
Direct unsubsidized loan:
A direct unsubsidized federal loan is a guaranteed loan in which you are responsible for paying
the interest as soon as the loan is disbursed.
Note: Your school must determine your need for a subsidized Federal Stafford Loan before determining your need for an
unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan. Requesting a given loan type does not necessarily mean you will be eligible to receive
that loan type.
Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credit hours).
ANNUAL LOAN LIMITS PER GRADE LEVEL *Dependent students can only receive up to $2,000 for an unsubsidized loan
Yearly $3,500 (1,750)
Yearly $4,000 (2,000)
Yearly $4,500 (2,250)
Yearly $4,000 (2,000)

Please Read & Initial
To receive a loan at Clovis Community College I understand I must:
Attend on-campus Entrance counseling (required for first time borrowers, recommended for all borrowers)
Have a 2019-2020 FAFSA file complete
Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (including transfer students)
Must be meeting CCC’s Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress standards
Be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours (including for summer) – courses must apply to the degree I’m seeking at CCC.
Attendance is observed carefully throughout the semester. If not attending classes, loan disbursements may be cancelled.
I’m aware that loan refunds (if any), will be distributed as two separate disbursements for each semester.
Additionally, I am aware that:
As of July 1, 2013, a first-time Federal Subsidized Student Loan borrower is no longer eligible for the Subsidized Student
program if he or she exceeds 150% of the published length necessary to graduate with their degree. Once a borrower
reaches the 150%
limit he or she will no longer be eligible for the interest subsidy on all Federal Subsidized Loans disbursed
on or after July 1, 2013.
Provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2012 temporarily eliminate the interest subsidy on
Direct Subsidized Loans
during the six month grace period. This applies to new Direct Stafford Loans for
which the first disbursement is made on or after July 1,
2012, and before July 1, 2014. The accrued
grace period interest not paid will be capitalized.
All students approved for a loan will be allowed to charge tuition, books, and supplies. Students will
receive notification of
anticipated disbursement dates to their CCC email account.
Loan funds will arrive by electronic funds transfer to the business office. If there is a balance on my
account, it will be taken out
of my loan refund before any refund amounts are determined.
As a student, I understand it is my responsibility to read and understand all printed materials. I am
aware all charges on my student
account not covered by financial aid are my responsibility.
