The student financial aid offerings this year were AWESOME! Just finished accepting my financial aid award for this school year.... The Pell grant is higher than ever, there was an extra $2000 in supplemental grants on top of the already increased Pell grant. There was enough offered in subsidized loans and grants, that I was able to pass on the unsubsidized ones altogether! Woohoo! Oh and the interest rates on subsidized loans are lower than ever as well, and getting lower. By 2012 the interest rate for subsidized loans will be 3.5% All the loans are direct from the Government! No Complaints here!
