Federal Stafford Loans Rights and Responsibilities
You must use the loan money only for authorized educational expenses.
You are entitled to a copy of your promissory note before or at the time the loan is made. The Direct Loan Program must provide you with a disclosure before your loan is made, and when your loan must be repaid, that includes details about your loan.
You must notify Direct Loans any time you drop to less than half-time enrollment or change schools. Also, notify Direct Loans if you change your name, address, phone number, social security number, references, driver’s license number; and, before you leave school, your permanent address, the name and address of your expected employer, and the address of your next of kin.
You must repay your loan, plus interest, even if you do not complete the program, you are unable to obtain employment after you complete it, or you are dissatisfied with or do not receive the educational or other services you purchased from the school. You can prepay your loan at any time without penalty.
Direct Loans may use a servicer to manage your account and must notify you of the name, address and telephone number of the new servicer.
You have a right to defer repayment of your loan in certain circumstances, for instance if you are in school, unemployed or experiencing an economic hardship. Contact your lender for eligibility requirements.
Master Promissory Note
If you signed a Master Promissory Note (MPN), you may receive multiple loans for a maximum 10-year period using the same promissory note. Your school will notify you of the amount of loan you are eligible to receive for each academic period, and whether the loan is subsidized or unsubsidized. You must notify Direct Loans if you do not want to receive additional loans under the MPN.
