Once you are no longer enrolled at least half time in an eligible program, you will receive a 6-month grace period on your Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans during which you are not required to make loan payments. The government will no longer subsidize or pay the interest on behalf of students during the six month grace period after graduation or when students are no longer enrolled at least half-time. This is effective for new Direct Subsidized Loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2012. You must begin repayment at the end of your grace period.
