Financial Aid Resources
"The U.S. Department of Education's Direct Loan Program provides loans to help students pay for education after high school. The Department of Education acts as a lender, providing funds for Stafford loans (for students) and PLUS loans (for parents) in the same amounts as the Stafford and PLUS loans offered through the Federal Family Education Loan Program. (In the FFEL Program banks and other private lenders provide these loans.)"
