Subsidized loans mean that the principal and interest is completely deferred while students are enrolled in college at least half-time. Unsubsidized loans mean that the principal is deferred but NOT the interest. Interest is accruing during the in-school period. We highly recommend making interest payments to your federal loan servicer while in school. Otherwise the interest will be capitalized upon repayment.
