2014-2015 Direct Loan Interest Rates

Interest rates for loans first disbursed between July 1, 2014 and July 1, 2015 will be slightly higher than last year:

  • Undergraduate Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized loans: 4.66% (up from 3.86% last year)

Did you recently graduate from DU?

If so, congratulations!

Did you borrow student loans to help pay for your DU education? If that answer is also yes, now is the time to start thinking about repaying those loans.

The good news is most federal student loans have a 6 month grace period after you graduate before you have to start making payments. During that time, we encourage you to take these 5 steps toward successful student loan repayment.

You can find much more information about repaying your loans from the Federal Student Aid website, including repayment plan options, loan servicer contacts, and forgiveness programs.

If at any time you have questions about loan repayment, however, please contact us. We're happy to help!
