On July 6, 2012, the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) was enacted. MAP-21 added a new provision to the Direct Loan statutory requirements that limits a first-time borrower's eligibility for Direct Subsidized Loans to a period not to exceed 150 percent of the length of the borrower’s educational program. Only first-time borrowers on or after July 1, 2013 are subject to the new provision.
