It's a common mistake to think that student financial aid is available only to low-income families.
In reality, certain programs, such as the unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan, offer below-market rates and deferred repayment to almost anyone.
All you have to do is apply.
Determining your eligibility for financial aid

Identifying your dependency status
Information required by the government differs according to whether you are a dependent or independent student.
