What are the aggregate limits for federal student loans?

Aggregate student loan limits are the maximum amount of student loans from the Federal Government that a student can receive during their education. There are different limits depending on whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student.  For the most up-to-date information on aggregate limits, you can visit the Department of Education website at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/types/loans/subsidized-unsubsidized.  You can find out how much you have already borrowed by going to https://nsldsfap.ed.gov/nslds_SA/.

Undergraduates can borrow up to $57,500 between unsubsidized and subsidized student loans. No more that $23,00 within this limit can be subsidized loans. 

Graduates can borrow up to $138,500.  The amount borrowed in an undergraduate program is counted in this total amount.
