PLUS loan eligibility is no longer being listed in your financial aid package. Instead, if you are a dependent student and your financial aid award package does not cover your anticipated educational expenses, your parent may request to borrow money, up to your cost of attendance, from the Federal Direct PLUS Loan Program. In order to do this, your parent must complete a credit-based application via to establish eligibility for funding. Your parent should visit the Parent Borrowers section of and sign in with their FSA ID to begin the application process. Your parent will need to include Appalachian State’s code of 002906 on the application. Please note your parent borrower must also complete an MPN before PLUS loan funding can disburse. The 2018-19 Federal Direct PLUS Loan application will become available at the beginning of April 2018.
