Beginning with the 2016-17 academic year, parents who wish to borrow a Parent PLUS Loan must apply at www.studentloans.gov. A Federal Student Aid (FSA) User ID and password are required.
Parents who wish to borrow a Parent PLUS Loan on behalf of their student must complete the 2015-16 Parent PLUS Loan Request Form. Parents should wait until the student has received their financial aid award before completing their Request Form.
Parents who believe that they would be denied the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan due to adverse credit may complete the 2015-16 Parent PLUS Loan Credit Check Request Form (2016-17 Parent PLUS Loan Credit Check Request Form), authorizing a credit check to be completed to determine eligibility.
If the result of the credit check is a denial, the student will be notified of additional Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan eligibility.If the credit is approved, the Financial Aid Office will notify the parent of the approval and the additional requirements should they choose to complete the Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan process.
