What to do if your application is denied
The U.S. Department of Education will mail credit appeal and endorser information. Parent borrowers who provide an email address on the PLUS Request Form will also receive a denial confirmation email.
Your student will automatically be awarded additional unsubsidized Stafford loan funds.
If you, another parent borrower, or credit-worthy endorser are later approved through the appeal process, your student will no longer be eligible for the additional unsubsidized Stafford loan.
If you are approved with an endorser as a co-signer of the loan, you will need to sign a new MPN for each endorsed loan.
Contact Direct Loan Applicant Services at 800-557-7394 for more information regarding your denial, appeal, or endorser process.
