Steps for completing a Parent PLUS loan application:
(Beginning Summer 2016 and forward)
**Student must have a completed FAFSA on file to be eligible for a PLUS loan.
Go to https://studentloans.gov and a parent will log in using his/her FSA ID.
Click on ‘Apply for a PLUS loan.’
Under the heading ‘Direct PLUS Loan Request for Parent Borrowers’ click the box that says ‘Complete PLUS Request for Parents' and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the loan application.
Shortly after the application is submitted, Arkansas Tech University will receive the PLUS request and send the student an updated award notification letter.
If the PLUS loan is approved and the parent is a new borrower, a PLUS Master Promissory Note (MPN) will also need to be completed by the parent on the studentloans.gov website. If the parent has borrowed a PLUS loan prior to this application, a new MPN is not required.
If the PLUS loan is denied, we will be notified of the denial and will offer the student additional Federal Direct Unsubsidized loans if eligibility remains.
