I’m going to be attending grad school in the Fall and I just noticed that they posted my financial aid package.

They are offering me a direct unsubsidized loan and a state grant. I was not expecting to get any sort of grant, so this is great news. The state grant greatly reduces the amount of student loans I will need to take out for the first year.

The amount of the loan they offered is twice as much as I need. When I go to accept the loan, it only allows me to accept the full amount. Is there a way to only accept some of the loan? I’ve never had to take out a student loan before so I’m not really familiar with how it works. Do I just need to contact the financial aid office at my school?
