A student’s combined Subsidized plus Unsubsidized Loan Total cannot exceed the corresponding maximum limits shown above plus the additional $2,000.For example; Freshmen can borrow a total of $3,500 plus$2,000 for a total of $5,500 for the year but the maximum Subsidized Loan will not exceed $3,500.
