Separate Entrance Interviews for Stafford and GradPLUS?

Postby kaydish21 » Tue Jun 22, 2010 3:37 pm

Is there a separate entrance interview to complete for Stafford and GradPLUS loans?

The only entrance interview I can find is about GradPlus loans, where is the Stafford one?

Thanks.

I think they are separate. I just did the stafford one and there was no mention of gradplus in any of it. By the way guessed on every question of the test (except the ones with hints...definitely confident about those answers)

Can you give me the link to this?

I did the one on studentloans.gov, and all the questions were about direct plus loans and not stafford. Where did you get the stafford one?

studentloan.gov has both. I completed mine and this is what it tells me: "Congratulations! You have successfully completed Entrance Counseling for Direct Loan Sub/Unsub/Perkins with Grad PLUS Loan Type."

There are separate interviews, but there is also an option (--LinkRemoved-- rightmost option) that allows you to do both at once with only one test.

You should be able to do the entrance counseling for both simultaneously.

When I look at "View Previously Completed Counseling" it says I have completed counseling type DLP. Does this mean I've completed both Stafford and Plus loan counseling?

Ok, it says :Congratulations! You have successfully completed Entrance Counseling for Direct Loan Sub/Unsub/Perkins with Grad PLUS Loan Type.

So am I done? Good to go?
