In response to the COVID-19 national emergency, President Trump announced that zero interest would accrue on student loans held by federal government agencies for at least 60 days beginning on March 13, 2020.
The student loan payment pause is extended, for eligible loans, until the U.S. Department of Education is permitted to implement the debt relief program or the litigation is resolved. Payments will restart 60 days later. If the debt relief program has not been implemented and the litigation has not been resolved by June 30, 2023 – payments will resume 60 days after that. For more information, The Department of Education published frequently asked questions (FAQs) with responses for borrowers on its studentaid.gov website.
Roane State offers a comprehensive program of financial aid assistance in the form of scholarships, work-study, grants, and loans. Major emphasis is placed upon financial need, academic achievement, and promise of future success.
Federal financial aid such as Federal Pell grants is only applied to courses that are in your major. For example, if you take four classes, but only three are in your major, then your federal financial aid will be based on the three classes in your major.
