When you’re ready to pursue your dreams, don’t let financial fears hold you back.
At Blue Ridge Community College, we keep tuition low and provide hundreds of scholarship opportunities to our incoming and returning students. Even so, we know that paying for college can still be challenging. That’s why we also offer additional options for financing your education. Certain federal student loans may also be forgiven.
We’re proud to participate in the federal Direct Loan program, through which the U.S. Department of Education makes loans to eligible students, as well as parents of dependent students. These loans are different from other types, such as personal loans or mortgages, and offer several advantages. For example, they don’t have as stringent qualification requirements, often have lower interest rates, and offer flexibility when it comes to paying them back. Federal student loans can also be forgiven in many instances.
On this page, you’ll find answers to the most frequently asked questions about federal loans by student and parent borrowers, including information about eligibility, interest rates, and repayment solutions. Below, you’ll also find links to helpful websites and contact information for our Financial Aid Office should you have further questions. We can help you remove economic barriers to elevating your education.
