- Financial aid applicants will be notified of their Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan eligiblity in their Financial Aid Award Letter on MySlice.
- Graduate PLUS Loans are not automatically awarded. Instead, students must calculate the amount they need to borrow using the Budget Calculator.
- After calculating the amount needed, proceed to the StudentLoans.gov website to apply.
- The College of Law Financial Aid Office will add the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan to your financial aid award once you have requested the loan on the StudentLoans.gov website and an email confirmation will be sent to you.
At this time, only newly admitted law students who plan to enroll at Syracuse University College of Law in the fall 2013 should apply for loans.
Current SU Law students who will be returning in 13-14 should wait until receipt of their financial aid award letters in late May before applying for next year's loans.
Educational loans only can be borrowed during the loan period for which a student is enrolled at least half time. The loan period is defined as the timeframe between the first day of classes and the last day of classes. Loans cannot be borrowed during periods of non-enrollment and new loans cannot be certified after the loan period has ended.
