FFELP

Federal Family Education Loan Program. A former program of the U.S. federal government in which the government subsidized or guaranteed private, low interest rate loans to students enrolled in degree-seeking post-secondary education programs. The program offered Stafford loans (both subsidized and unsubsidized) and PLUS loans. The program was eliminated in 2010 when the federal government directly took over the lending programs.
