Financing a college education is a concern for most families; therefore, we are committed to assisting students and parents in finding the resources to make an affordable investment. Here are a few options to explore.
Parent PLUS Loan
To apply for the plus loan complete the following steps:
- Go to www.studentloans.gov
- The parent will login with their personal information (SS#, first two characters of last name, DOB, and FAFSA PIN)
- Once logged in click on Request for Direct PLUS loan
- Select PARENT PLUS
Complete the application and once submitted a decision will be made whether accepted or declined. If denied, the student will be eligible for additional unsubsidized loan. The parent will need to choose I do not wish to pursue the PLUS loan for the student to receive the additional unsubsidized loan.
If the parent is approved a MPN will need to be completed for the PLUS loan. This can be done by going to www.studentloans.gov sign in with the parent’s personal information. Once logged in click on complete master promissory note and select Parent PLUS Loan.
It is up to the student and their family if they wish to research and find a private lender that suits their needs.
