Changes in Student Loans

A new law has eliminated the Federal Family Education Loan Program. Beginning July 1, 2010, we will process student loans through the new Federal Direct Loan Program (Direct). This means that federal student loans will be funded by the U.S. Department of Education rather than private lenders.

As an authorized participant, KCTCS Colleges will ensure students and parents are able to borrow funds to meet their educational needs. However, students and parents are required to take some steps to participate. Please review the Private Lending FAQ s and contact your local college Financial Aid Office for questions and assistance.
