What Are Title IV Loans ?

Title IV Loans were created by the Higher Education Act of 1965. It created several education loan programs which are collectively referred to as the Federal Family Education Loan Program (FFELP). These loans, also called Title IV Loans, are the Federal Stafford Loans (Subsidized and Unsubsidized), Federal PLUS Loans and Federal Consolidation Loans. The Title IV School Codes are needed when you fill out the FAFSA form. You need to supply the Title IV Code for each school to which you are applying. This code is a six-character identifier that begins with one of the following letters: O, G, B, or E.
