Applying for a PLUS Loan? It Might Be Too Early
Due to Federal Direct Loan credit check procedures, Parent PLUS Loan and Grad PLUS Loan applications will expire if submitted too early. For that reason, we ask that PLUS applicants apply on or after the following dates:
Summer 2014 - On or after April 1, 2014
Fall 2014/Spring 2015 (full year) - On or after June 1, 2014
Fall 2014 only (one semester) - On or after June 1, 2014
Spring 2015 only (one semester) - On or after November 1, 2014
Approved PLUS loan applications received prior to the indicated date will expire prior to the scheduled semester disbursement - this will prevent the release of loan funds to the student's University account and will require a secondary PLUS application to be submitted and approved.
Parent PLUS Loan and Grad PLUS Loan applications may be submitted online at www.studentloans.gov. Contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions!
