Once your grace period ends, you must begin repaying your loan. Interest subsidy during the 6 month grace period is eliminated for loans between 7/1/12 and 7/1/14.  Students will be responsible for the interest accrued during that grace period.
Unsubsidized: interest begins to accrue after first disbursement.
