Bills for Fall 2016 will be created mid-July. If our office requested documentation to complete your financial aid application it is important to turn those documents in as soon as possible. This will provide us with the time needed to review the documents and ensure that your aid is applied to your bill.

You can check your financial aid status 24 hours a day / 7 days a week at under Financial Aid (Check Your Aid).

If you applied for a Parent PLUS Loan for Fall 2016, we are beginning to receive credit check results back from the Department of Education. You will receive information from the Department of Education regarding the credit decision.

Please note that if you applied for a Parent PLUS Loan for Spring 2017 only (not for fall and spring combined) credit checks will not be available until around October due to the length of time that the credit checks are valid.

If your Parent PLUS Loan application is denied your student may be eligible for $4000 to $5000 additional unsubsidized loan, but the student must request it by contacting our office. We refer to this additional loan as the "PLUS Replacement Loan".

Visit our Parent PLUS Loan page for more information.
