London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS) participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program. These webpages outline the types of loans available, how to apply for them and when and how they are disbursed. We will also keep you informed at each step of the process by email.
You may have previously borrowed via a private lender through the FFEL Program. This program is no longer available. However, the Direct Loan Program offers the same loans but instead of a bank lending the money, the U.S. Department of Education (the Department) lends the money directly to students through the student’s school. There are also some differences in the names of the loans. The FFEL Program’s Federal Stafford Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized) are called Direct Subsidized Loans and Direct Unsubsidized Loans and the FFEL Program’s Federal PLUS Loan is called a Direct PLUS Loan in the Direct Loan Program.
