IMPORTANT FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION FOR RETURNING STUDENTS WITH STAFFORD LOANS. In late March, President Obama signed new health care legislation that also included major changes to the federal Stafford and PLUS Loan programs. All colleges are required to transition to the Direct Loan Program. Beginning July 1, 2010, lenders will no longer participate in the Stafford and PLUS Loan programs. The U.S. Department of Education will be the only lender. This means that for the 2010-11 school year you will not be able to use your current lender for your Stafford Loans. The amounts that you may borrow and the interest rates will not change. For all Stafford Loans a 1% origination fee will be deducted from each loan disbursement. A 0.5% rebate will be granted up front, but will be lost if the first twelve payments are not paid on time. You will need to complete a new Master Promissory Note (MPN). The MPN can be completed online at www.studentloans.gov. You will need your PIN that you used to complete your FAFSA to access the electronic MPN. This requirement needs to be completed before the beginning of the fall 2010 semester. Your 2010-11 loan will not disburse until you have completed a new MPN. For more information about the Direct Loan Program go to www.studentloans.gov. Please contact the Student Financial Planning Office by e-mail email@example.com or by phone 5365 if you have any questions.
