Know Your Limits

An important aspect of smart borrowing is knowing your Direct loan limits. Federal Direct loan limits vary based on a student’s dependency status, class level and if the student is a Undergraduate student or Graduate/Professional student. Students should always know the loan limits available to them at each academic level as well as the amount of loans borrowed. Students can review their personal federal loan borrowing information at National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS).
