you should have already applied for FAFSA
It wasn't for FAFSA; I submitted that information beginning of March. It's another financial aid award letter with the 2017-2018 student budget numbers and the actual amount for my PLUS Loan after scholarships and the unsubsidized loan is factored in, but I'm unsure whether or not I should actually be submitting my loan application for the Grad PLUS Loan, or if I should be waiting for explicit instructions from financial aid hahaha. Sorry, I've never applied for federal loans before, so I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to all of this.
