Federal Loan Options
In order to receive federal loans, you must be an eligible US citizen or permanent resident.
Complete the 2021-22 FAFSA online after January 1 at fafsa.ed.gov using BLS school code G02677.
For federal loan programs, all law students are independent, so you should not include parental income or asset information on your FAFSA. The FAFSA determines your eligibility for Federal Unsubsidized Loans, Graduate Plus Loans, and Federal Work-Study. Some students are selected for verification; if you are, you will be required to submit your 2019 Federal Income Tax Return to the Office of Financial Aid if you are selected.
In order to borrow loans you must submit the My Federal Loan Request form.
In addition, you must submit the following at studentaid.gov:
- Sign a Master Promissory Note for your Unsubsidized Loan; this MPN will be good for 10 years
- Complete your Entrance Counseling
- If you need additional loan funding, you can apply for a Graduate Plus Loan up to cost of attendance (less other aid and sign a second Master Promissory Note for Graduate Plus Loan
No Federal Loans can be disbursed without your completed Entrance Counseling and your signed Master Promissory Note(s).
