PLUS Loan Applicant Communication
Recently, the U.S. Department of Education sent emails or letters to certain Direct PLUS Loan applicants who have been denied a PLUS loan due to adverse credit history. The email or letter, which is in addition to the standard denial communication, is sent to applicants who could most likely be approved if they request reconsideration of the initial PLUS loan denial. If you have received this communication, you should contact the Student Loan Support Center at 1-800-557-7394 to request to request reconsideration. The applicant (not the Financial Aid Office or the child of the parent applicant) should contact Student Loan Support Center to request reconsideration as soon as possible. Generally, this process can be completed in just a few minutes. Please bear in mind that the Financial Aid Office cannot guarantee that your reconsideration request will result in an approval for the PLUS loan.
