At EdFed, it gets simpler to understand your loan options. We help you understand the process.
Here’s how the PLUS Loan process works:
1. Complete the FAFSA
Though it is not essential, but we suggest you complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) before you apply for PLUS loan.
2. Conduct a No-Obligation Credit Check with us
An immediate no-obligation credit check is done at EdFed to check whether you qualify for the PLUS Loan program. Apply online or take the guidance of Education Finance Specialist at (800) 821-5659.
3. Secure your Pre-Approval
EdFed Second Chance Program helps you understand why the approval was not granted initially and also suggest ways to resolve any credit issues.
4. Complete your application and receive your funds
The loan application is submitted after the pre-approval. It is then certified by the school's Financial Aid Office and forwarded to the Disbursing Agent for final approval, guarantee and disbursement. The loan funds are generally received at the beginning of each school term.
