How do I find the GradPlus Application?

Postby Niki » Wed Jun 16, 2010 1:22 pm

I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but my school has not provided me with any information about completing the loan process. I have accepted the loan amounts from my school's website and have completed the online counseling. What is the next step? I know I have to fill out an application but I don't know where to find it.

Thanks. New problem--it says my school does not accept that award year? I guess I'm going to have to call.

Were you awarded grad plus in your financial aid package? My understanding is it needs to actually be "awarded" to you up to the COA (which I thought they all automatically do, but perhaps not).

Someone correct me if I'm wrong...but this could be your issue if your school didn't "award" it to you.

Yes, it was awarded to me and I've accepted the amounts through my school. I'm guessing that I have to apply directly with my school because I can't even complete the MPN or whatever it is called on the studentloan.gov site.

Sorry if this is a stupid question...but...

Do you have to accept your awards from your school before filling out the application on studenloans.gov, or can you apply there first?

I had to, every school is different though.

Call the financial aid office of your school. Each school might have a different process--not everyone is doing it through the same system.
