Federal Loan Programs

Parent PLUS Loans
PLUS loans are unsubsidized loans for the parents of dependent students enrolled at least half-time at a school that participates in the Direct Loan Program.

Applicants for this loan must be student's biological or adoptive parent. If the biological or adoptive parent has remarried at the time of completing the FAFSA, the stepparent may apply for this loan on behalf of the student.

Parent PLUS Loan borrowers cannot have an adverse credit history (a credit check will be done). In addition, parents and their dependent child must be U.S. citizens or eligible noncitizens, must not be in default on any federal education loans or owe an overpayment on a federal education grant, and must meet other general eligibility requirements for the Federal Student Aid programs.

Applications for this loan are available in the Financial Aid office. Once approved, the borrower (parent) must complete a PLUS loan promissory note at studentaid.gov.

Federal Student Aid Loan Servicers
When a student receives a Federal Student Loan, they are assigned a loan servicer. The loan servicer is the organization that handles billing for the loan(s) and can provide borrowers with information about repayment. If you, the borrower, are not sure who your loan servicer is, you can look up this information on the National Student Loan Data System at studentaid.gov.

You will need your FSA ID. This is the same username and password you used to sign your FAFSA.
