What's new in Financial Aid?

Information on this page will change regularly to account for new happenings in financial aid.

  1. After September 30, 2015, we will be unable to disburse Federal Perkins Loans to first-time Perkins Loan borrowers.  First-time borrowers must have completed all of their financial aid paperwork prior to October 1, 2015 for the loan to be disbursed.
  2. The interest rate on Federal Stafford Loans borrowed between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016 is fixed at 4.29%.  Federal Parent Loans (PLUS) borrowed for the same time period have a fixed rate of 6.84%.
  3. On May 10, 2015, the FSA ID replaced the PIN number as a means of electronically signing the FAFSA and loan documents as well as signing into Federal Student Aid websites.  A FSA ID can be created at the following address: https://fsaid.ed.gov/npas/index.htm.
  4. The Financial Aid Office is excited to announce the launch of GradReady.  This money management website allows students to learn more about topics like credit, student loans and identity theft.
