Federal Student Loan Programs
Hampshire College students are eligible for these federal student loan programs:
- Subsidized and Unsubsidized Direct Student Loans: These federal loans are processed through our financial aid office;
- Perkins Loans: A federal loan offered through our financial aid office; a limited number of loans are available each year;
- Federal Student Consolidation Loans: These are available to students who want to consolidate, or refinance, various federal student loans into one larger loan. This consolidation may extend the loan term, depending on the amount, resulting in lower monthly payments. Student borrowers with eligible federal loans must apply for these loans through the StudentAid.gov website.
