Is Fall 2020 your only semester because you are graduating? Are you taking a semester off? Do you have loans that have not been accepted or need additional loan funds? Now is the time to act!

With the Fall 2020 semester quickly coming to an end, you must accept or decline any outstanding loan offers, submit final loan increase requests, and/or complete all Parent PLUS applications by 5:00 pm on December 8, 2020.

This is a hard deadline. Federal regulations dictate that we must originate Fall only loan offers, Fall only loan increases, and Fall only parent PLUS loans before the term ends. After the deadline, all fall only loan offers will be cancelled and fall only loan increases and parent PLUS loans cannot be processed as you will no longer be eligible for the funding.

Please reach out by phone (828-262-2190) or email ( with any questions. You may also schedule an appointment to meet with a financial aid counselor.
