Federal Student Loan Interest Rates

Request #568245

Submitted on Wednesday May 31, 2017 at 4:24 pm

I am currently looking for a historical data for Federal Student Loan Interest Rates for the period (1980- Present). If possible, it would be helpful to have the annual data for each loan type from 1980-present. The loan types can be seen through the Federal Student Aid website here: or in the attached pdf. I am looking for the same data found on student aid website, only for a larger time period.

Let me know if this data is available or where I might be able to find this data. Any help or advice would be much appreciated. Please feel free to contact me at this email or the phone number listed below at your earliest convenience.
