  • Apply to the College, there is an application fee (you need to do this because they will not discuss your financial aid unless this is satisfied).
  • If you qualify for the Direct Plus loan you will be requesting what you need.
  • If you do not qualify for the Direct Plus loan your Stafford Loan will increase from $5,500 to $9,500. Make sure the college makes the adjustment.
  • You need to find out if you are awarded a Pell Grant. They can range from $0-$5,700. A rule of thumb is, if your EFC number is <1000 you will most likely receive a  $5,700 Pell grant.
