I understand the deadline is May 4th--do we also have to have applied to the credit agency in question before May 4th? Maybe rabbit or sandpiper can help out on this issue, if they remember how they did it....or maybe this is a simple issue that everyone but me knows, which certainly might be the case
same question. anyone?
Yes, we have to have applied for our PLUS loans by May 4th through our lender. As to the Stafford, it is my understanding that Yale handles that internally, so you don't need to apply.
Speaking of applying for PLUS, I have one more question that I need answered--I'm currently a research assistant at my university (still in undergrad) working part time, and my job ends in a week. Under the PLUS loan application, it asks for my employment information--should I list my current part time university employment, or are they referring to full time, substantial employment? I would really appreciate an answer, as this point is all that's holding me back from applying for the PLUS loan.
