Tips

  • When accepting a partial amount, type a whole amount in the box — no decimals/cents!
  • If you accept an incorrect Stafford Loan award amount, call our office as soon as possible so that we can reset your awards for you. If you wait until after your loans are processed, you will have to contact your counselor and complete a Loan Adjustment Authorization Form, which may delay your disbursement(s).
