Sorry if this is a stupid question...(fafsa)

Postby turkey » Mon Jan 09, 2012 2:52 pm

I completed my documents and when I submitted them one of the paragraphs said:

"You may be eligible for the following:
Direct Stafford Loan Estimate - $20,500.00
You may also be eligible to receive other federal, state, or institutional grants, scholarships, and/or work-study."

I notice that it didn't list the Direct Plus Loan, but I don't have any factors that would keep me from being eligible ( I ran my Equifax and I know I don't have any bankruptcy, foreclosures, defaults).

Is it a big deal that it doesn't list the Direct Plus? I guess it doesn't list Graduate Plus either (are they the same thing?)

Think back to undergrad:

Did you aid packages indicate eligibility for the Parent Plus Loan? It's a credit based loan and financial aid doesn't know your credit situation so they can't determine either way.
