Direct PLUS Loan Application Update
The Direct PLUS Loan application for 2014-15 is now available at www.studentloans.gov. Applications will be processed beginning in June. We encourage parents to apply no later than the end of June. To eliminate additional paperwork and credit checks, parents should apply for the entire academic year (August-May). Interest does not accrue on the spring stipend until after it is disbursed, so there is no benefit in applying for spring separately.
Financial Aid Packages:
As of March 25, 2014, eligible incoming freshmen have been notified how to view and accept their financial aid award packages on the iROAR portal by email. The email was sent to the email address listed on the student's admission application. All other eligible students will be notified by email about their financial aid award packages during the first week of June.
The Summer Enrollment Form has been updated and is now available to view. Students must FINALIZE their summer school schedule before completing this year's Summer Enrollment Form. Please click here to read more about financial aid for summer school.
