Financial Aid

Unsubsidized Stafford Loans

The Unsubsidized Direct loan is a loan in which the Federal Government does not pay the interest charges. You are charged interest from the day the loan is disbursed until it is fully repaid, including all in-school, grace, and deferment periods. You have the option of paying the interest while in school, or it can be deferred until after graduation. If the interest accumulates it will be capitalized and added to the principle amount of the loan, thereby increasing the total amount of the loan.

The additional unsubsidized loan request can only be submitted if you have already been awarded at EMCC and now want to request additional loan funds. Students must complete the Financial Aid Revision Request form and submit it to the financial aid office before the deadline for the requested semester. If a student’s last day of class is before the deadline, the loan request must be submitted two weeks prior to the students last day of class.

The last day to request loan for the 2016-2017 aid year is as follows: Fall - December 2, 2016, Spring - April 28, 2017, Summer - June 9, 2017.

The RALF can be submitted to the financial aid office electronically through the following link:
