Is there a time limit on how long I can receive loans?
If you are a first-time borrower as of July 1, 2013 there is a limit on the maximum period of time (measured in academic years) that you can receive Subsidized Federal Direct Loans.
In general, you may not receive Subsidized Federal Direct Loans for more than 150% of the published length of your program. This is called your "maximum eligibility period".
For example, if you are enrolled in a two-year program: 150% of 2 years = 3 years (2 x 1.5)
See your program to find the published length of your program.
If your previous federal loans were paid off as of July 1, 2013 and you are now borrowing again, you are considered a first-time borrower and this policy applies to you.
If you do not complete your program before you've reached 150% of your program length you will:

Calculate your previous usage. Don't forget to include usage for previous programs at Hawkeye and other schools.
If your current program's maximum eligibility period is larger than what you've previously used, the remainder is what you are still eligible for.
The US Department of Education will be responsible for:
