Oh, and if anyone knows how I can accept my financial aid award, do tell! I also need to figure out how to apply for Grad Plus through NYU (I was approved through my old school but need to switch).
Bumping for the quoted. My financial aid email says it wants me to "accept or decline" the award but I can't figure out how to do that with access to Albert or whatever. Also, does NYU have a special form they want for GradPlus? I had to do one through Michigan, so they didn't want us just going on the the student aid site and applying.
Also, is there anything else I can do before getting my netID? Chomping at the bit here.
Some people have had luck with giving the financial aid office a call. However, I don't know if that would work for you if you haven't already gone through the Master Promissory Note process for both Stafford and GradPlus.
Us early birds received an email a couple of weeks ago detailing in like 5 steps how we should go about requesting/accepting our loans. It first directed us to some government website to do entrance counseling and the MPN's. After, we were sent to Albert to accept/decline/adjust the loans being offered. If you'd like that financial aid email, I'd have no problem sending it your way.
I can't think of anything in particular that you can do without your netID. You're basically stuck until you get that.
PS. you should join the Facebook group if you haven't already. It actually has a lot of useful info about everything from loans to housing.
