Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 10 / Wednesday, January 15, 2020 / Notices DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION Annual Notice of Interest Rates for Variable-Rate Federal Student Loans Made Under the Federal Family Education Loan Program Prior to July 1, 2010 Federal Student Aid, Department of Education. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Chief Operating Officer for Federal Student Aid announces the interest rates for loans made under the Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) Program that have variable interest rates. The rates announced in this notice are in effect for the period July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 84.032. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jon Utz, U.S. Department of Education, 830 First Street NE, 11th Floor, Washington, DC 20202. Telephone: (202) 377–4040 or by email: Jon.Utz@ed.gov. If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) or a text telephone (TTY), call the Federal Relay Service (FRS), toll free, at 1–800–877– 8339. SUMMARY: Section 427A of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) (20 U.S.C. 1077a), provides formulas for determining the interest rates charged to borrowers on loans made under the FFEL Program, including Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized Stafford Loans (Stafford Loans), Federal PLUS Loans (PLUS Loans), Federal Consolidation Loans (Consolidation Loans), and Federal Supplemental Loans for Students (SLS Loans). 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. For loans with a variable interest rate, the specific interest rate formula that applies to a particular loan depends on the date of the first disbursement of the loan or, in the case of a Consolidation Loan, the date the application for the loan was received. If a loan has a variable interest rate, a new jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Jan 14, 2020 Jkt 250001 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, 2019, through June 30, 2020. Interest rates for fixed-rate FFEL Program loans may be found in a Federal Register notice published on September 15, 2015 (80 FR 55342). For the majority of variable-rate FFEL Program loans, the annual interest rate is equal to the lesser of— (1) The bond equivalent rate of the 91day Treasury bills auctioned at the final auction held before June 1 of each year, plus a statutory add-on percentage; or (2) A statutorily established maximum interest rate. The bond equivalent rate of the 91day Treasury bills auctioned on May 28, 2019, is 2.362 percent, rounded to 2.36 percent. For PLUS Loans first disbursed before July 1, 1998, and for all SLS Loans, the annual interest rate is equal to the lesser of— (1) The weekly average of the one-year constant maturity Treasury yield, as published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, for the last calendar week ending on or before June 26 of each year, plus a statutory add-on percentage; or (2) A statutorily established maximum interest rate. The weekly average of the one-year constant maturity Treasury yield, as published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, for the last calendar week ending on or before June 26, 2019, is 1.98 percent. For Consolidation Loans that have a variable interest rate, the annual interest rate for the portion of a Consolidation Loan that repaid loans other than loans made under the Health Education Assistance Loans (HEAL) Program is equal to— (1) The bond equivalent rate of the 91day Treasury bill auctioned at the final auction held before June 1 of each year, plus a statutory add-on percentage; or (2) A statutorily established maximum interest rate. If a Consolidation Loan (whether a variable-rate loan or a fixed-rate loan) repaid loans made under the HEAL PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2415 Program, the interest rate on the portion of the Consolidation Loan that repaid HEAL loans is a variable rate that is equal to the average of the bond equivalent rates of the 91-day Treasury bills auctioned for the quarter ending June 30, plus a statutory add-on percentage. For the portion of a Consolidation Loan that repaid HEAL loans, there is no maximum interest rate. The average of the bond equivalent rates of the 91-day Treasury bills auctioned for the quarter ending on June 30, 2019, is 2.37 percent. The statutory add-on percentages and maximum interest rates vary depending on loan type and when the loan was first disbursed. In addition, the add-on percentage for certain Stafford Loans is different depending on whether the loan is in an in-school, grace, or deferment status, or in any other status. If the interest rate calculated in accordance with the applicable formula exceeds the statutory maximum interest rate, the statutory maximum rate applies. Charts 1 through 4 show the interest rate formulas that are used to determine the interest rates for all variable-rate FFEL Program loans and the interest rates that are in effect during the 12month period from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. Unless otherwise indicated, the cohorts shown in each chart include all borrowers, regardless of prior borrowing. Chart 1 shows the interest rates for loans with rates based on the 91-day Treasury bill, with the exception of ‘‘converted’’ variable-rate Federal Stafford Loans and certain Federal Consolidation Loans. Chart 2 shows the interest rates for loans with rates based on the weekly average of the one-year constant maturity Treasury yield. Chart 3 shows the interest rates for ‘‘converted’’ variable-rate Federal Stafford Loans. These are loans that originally had varying fixed interest rates. Finally, Chart 4 shows the interest rates for variable-rate Federal Consolidation Loans, and for the portion of any Federal Consolidation Loan that repaid loans made under the HEAL Program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Direct PLUS Loans, and Direct Consolidation Loans (collectively referred to as ‘‘Direct Loans’’) may have either fixed or variable interest rates, depending on when the loan was first disbursed or, in the case of a Direct Consolidation Loan, when the application for the loan was received. Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2006, and Direct Consolidation Loans for which the application was received on or after February 1, 1999, have fixed interest rates that apply for the life of the loan. Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans first disbursed before July 1, 2006, and Direct Consolidation Loans for which the application was received before February 1, 1999, have variable interest rates that are determined annually and are in effect during the period from July 1 of one year through June 30 of the following year. This notice announces the fixed interest rates for Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans with first disbursement dates on or after July 1, PO 00000 Add-on (%) 2019, and before July 1, 2020, and provides interest rate information for other fixed-rate Direct Loans. Interest rate information for variable-rate Direct Loans is announced in a separate Federal Register notice. Fixed-Rate Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans First Disbursed on or After July 1, 2013 Section 455(b) of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) (20 U.S.C. 1087e(b)) includes formulas for determining the interest rates for all Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2013. The interest rate for these loans is a fixed rate that is determined annually for all loans first disbursed during any 12-month period beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30. The rate is equal to the high yield of the 10year Treasury notes auctioned at the final auction held before June 1 of that 12-month period, plus a statutory addon percentage that varies depending on the loan type and, for Direct Unsubsidized Loans, whether the loan was made to an undergraduate or graduate student. The calculated interest rate may not exceed a maximum rate specified in the HEA. If the interest rate formula results in a rate that exceeds the statutory maximum rate, the rate is the statutory maximum rate. Loans first disbursed during different 12-month periods that begin on July 1 and end on June 30 may have different interest rates, but the rate determined for any loan is a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan. On May 8, 2019, the United States Treasury Department held a 10-year Treasury note auction that resulted in a high yield of 2.479 percent. Chart 1 shows the fixed interest rates for Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans, and Direct PLUS Loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 2019, and before July 1, 2020.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION


Annual Notice of Interest Rates for Variable-Rate Federal Student 
Loans Made Under the Federal Family Education Loan Program Prior to 
July 1, 2010

AGENCY: Federal Student Aid, Department of Education.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Chief Operating Officer for Federal Student Aid announces 
the interest rates for loans made under the Federal Family Education 
Loan (FFEL) Program that have variable interest rates. The rates 
announced in this notice are in effect for the period July 1, 2019, 
through June 30, 2020. Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) 
Number: 84.032.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jon Utz, U.S. Department of Education, 
830 First Street NE, 11th Floor, Washington, DC 20202. Telephone: (202)

    If you use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) or a text 
telephone (TTY), call the Federal Relay Service (FRS), toll free, at 1-
800-877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 427A of the Higher Education Act of 
1965, as amended (HEA) (20 U.S.C. 1077a), provides formulas for 
determining the interest rates charged to borrowers on loans made under 
the FFEL Program, including Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized 
Stafford Loans (Stafford Loans), Federal PLUS Loans (PLUS Loans), 
Federal Consolidation Loans (Consolidation Loans), and Federal 
Supplemental Loans for Students (SLS Loans). 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. For loans with a variable interest rate, 
the specific interest rate formula that applies to a particular loan 
depends on the date of the first disbursement of the loan or, in the 
case of a Consolidation Loan, the date the application for the loan was 
received. 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, 
2019, through June 30, 2020. Interest rates for fixed-rate FFEL Program 
loans may be found in a Federal Register notice published on September 
15, 2015 (80 FR 55342).
    For the majority of variable-rate FFEL Program loans, the annual 
interest rate is equal to the lesser of--
    (1) The bond equivalent rate of the 91-day Treasury bills auctioned 
at the final auction held before June 1 of each year, plus a statutory 
add-on percentage; or
    (2) A statutorily established maximum interest rate.
    The bond equivalent rate of the 91-day Treasury bills auctioned on 
May 28, 2019, is 2.362 percent, rounded to 2.36 percent.
    For PLUS Loans first disbursed before July 1, 1998, and for all SLS 
Loans, the annual interest rate is equal to the lesser of--
    (1) The weekly average of the one-year constant maturity Treasury 
yield, as published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve 
System, for the last calendar week ending on or before June 26 of each 
year, plus a statutory add-on percentage; or
    (2) A statutorily established maximum interest rate.
    The weekly average of the one-year constant maturity Treasury 
yield, as published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve 
System, for the last calendar week ending on or before June 26, 2019, 
is 1.98 percent.
    For Consolidation Loans that have a variable interest rate, the 
annual interest rate for the portion of a Consolidation Loan that 
repaid loans other than loans made under the Health Education 
Assistance Loans (HEAL) Program is equal to--
    (1) The bond equivalent rate of the 91-day Treasury bill auctioned 
at the final auction held before June 1 of each year, plus a statutory 
add-on percentage; or
    (2) A statutorily established maximum interest rate.
    If a Consolidation Loan (whether a variable-rate loan or a fixed-
rate loan) repaid loans made under the HEAL Program, the interest rate 
on the portion of the Consolidation Loan that repaid HEAL loans is a 
variable rate that is equal to the average of the bond equivalent rates 
of the 91-day Treasury bills auctioned for the quarter ending June 30, 
plus a statutory add-on percentage. For the portion of a Consolidation 
Loan that repaid HEAL loans, there is no maximum interest rate.
    The average of the bond equivalent rates of the 91-day Treasury 
bills auctioned for the quarter ending on June 30, 2019, is 2.37 
percent.
    The statutory add-on percentages and maximum interest rates vary 
depending on loan type and when the loan was first disbursed. In 
addition, the add-on percentage for certain Stafford Loans is different 
depending on whether the loan is in an in-school, grace, or deferment 
status, or in any other status. If the interest rate calculated in 
accordance with the applicable formula exceeds the statutory maximum 
interest rate, the statutory maximum rate applies.
    Charts 1 through 4 show the interest rate formulas that are used to 
determine the interest rates for all variable-rate FFEL Program loans 
and the interest rates that are in effect during the 12-month period 
from July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020. Unless otherwise indicated, 
the cohorts shown in each chart include all borrowers, regardless of 
prior borrowing.
    Chart 1 shows the interest rates for loans with rates based on the 
91-day Treasury bill, with the exception of ``converted'' variable-rate 
Federal Stafford Loans and certain Federal Consolidation Loans.
    Chart 2 shows the interest rates for loans with rates based on the 
weekly average of the one-year constant maturity Treasury yield.
    Chart 3 shows the interest rates for ``converted'' variable-rate 
Federal Stafford Loans. These are loans that originally had varying 
fixed interest rates.
    Finally, Chart 4 shows the interest rates for variable-rate Federal 
Consolidation Loans, and for the portion of any Federal Consolidation 
Loan that repaid loans made under the HEAL Program.
