Federal Stafford Student Loans
There are two types of Stafford loans: subsidized and unsubsidized. If you have a subsidized loan, the federal government pays the interest on the loan while you’re enrolled. If you have an unsubsidized loan, you must pay the interest while you are in school, or you may choose to defer interest payments until graduation.
