If you have not already done so, you must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to borrowing a Federal Direct PLUS Loan.
If you wish to apply for the Federal Direct PLUS (parent) Loan for the 2014-2015 academic year, you must complete all sections of the 2014-2015 Direct PLUS Loan Request Form. Do not complete this form for your student's Direct Loan.
Please return the completed form via mail or fax to:
Fax - (309) 794-7174
The Financial Assistance Office will notify you if your loan has been credit-approved. If your loan has been credit-approved, you can complete your PLUS Master Promissory Note online here. You will need your federal PIN (personal identification number) to complete your MPN. Your PIN is also used to file your student's FAFSA. If you do not have a PIN, you should apply for one at www.pin.ed.gov before you attempt to complete your MPN. Please note: The Financial Assistance Office does not have access to your PIN.
The Financial Assistance Office will be notified electronically when you have finished your MPN.
