When will I need to start making payments on my loans?

Payments on your federal student loans will begin once you drop below half time, leave school, or graduate. Federal subsidized and unsubsidized loan borrowers are given a grace period of six months before repayment begins. Keep in mind any previous gaps in your enrollment (other than summer) may have used part of or all of your grace period.
