How to apply
If you are a US Student seeking to borrow funds under the Direct Loan program first go to
https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/ and then apply through The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), if you have not already done so. The following website will guide you through the process of completing your FAFSA
The US loans flow chart in the Downloads section of this page shows the steps you must then take in order for LIPA to approve your loan.
Continuing students should check that any promissory notes are still valid and re-sign if necessary, and re-apply for credit check (for PLUS loans): you must keep copies (pdf versions) as any previously signed are likely to be out of date and they will be needed for your loan to be input into the US loan systems by LIPA.
