Direct Stafford Loan Counseling Sessions
Before a Direct Stafford Loan application can be processed by the Office of Financial Aid, you must successfully complete an Online Direct Loan Counseling session. Federal regulations require we inform student loan borrowers of their rights and responsibilities regarding their loan and explain the terms and conditions of the Direct Stafford Loan program.
Don't Forget to File a FAFSA for Each Year
Students must apply each year to obtain financial aid or to continue receiving aid by submitting a FAFSA. FAFSA deadline for priority consideration is March 2.
