No new loans have been made under the FFEL Program since June 30, 2010. The FFEL Program includes loans with variable interest rates that change each year and loans with fixed interest rates that remain the same for the life of the loan.

If a loan has a variable interest rate, a new rate is determined annually and is in effect during the period from July 1 of one year through June 30 of the following year. This notice announces the interest rates for variable-rate FFEL Program loans that will be in effect during the period from July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019. Interest rates for fixed-rate FFEL Program loans may be found in a Federal Register notice published on September 15, 2015 (80 FR 55342).
