What is the difference between Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans?

Subsidized means that the federal government pays for the interest on the loan while you are in school and taking at least 6 credits. You must also make timely progress toward your degree to keep the subsidy.  Unsubsidized means the  federal government is not paying the interest and the interest is accumulating from the time the loans first pays toward your tuition and fees.
