What is a subsidized loan?
For all subsidized federal student loans, the U.S. Department of Education subsidizes - pays the interest on - your loan while you are in school and during periods of deferment, such as during military service.
Subsidized loans are always federal student loans. If you take out a private student loan, you must pay all interest, including interest that is charged while you are in school.
