The point is that this IS how financial aid is awarded. subsidized loans are awarded first, but when you reach that max, the rest is made up with unsubsidized loans. Get it?A.D.O.R. said:keraven: So can I renegotiate my award for next year to first max out subsidized loans and then use unsubsidized for remaining financial need? Thanks for the help.
Nope, then your EFC was high enough to make you inelidgable for the full $8500/2 semesters. So in your case, whatever they did award you was YOUR max and you won't be eable to exceed that. Unless for some reason you filled really late or after the fact, then you may have missed out on funds you would otherwise be elidgable for.A.D.O.R. said:well, i get what you're saying but my school did not max out my subsidized loan money before giving me unsub. money. i guess they don't get it.
I think I missed the original question, but this line caught my attention.keraven said:Turning down aid money will NOT affect your award for next year.
