I was approved for a Pell Grant and a $9500 a year Stafford Loan when I filled out my FAFSA; this was for Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 semesters. I realize that these amounts are typically divided by two and disbursed twice a year. However, I did not attend school in Fall 2012, but I am registering for Spring 2013 on Monday. If I apply for my full amount of sub and unsub Stafford Loan, will I receive the whole $9500, or will I only get half, even though I did not attend last semester?
Thanks in advance.
