Requirements & Application
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) prior to requesting a
Federal Direct Parent PLUS loan. The FAFSA can be filed on-line by going to
Submit a complete Parent PLUS Loan Application to the Financial Aid Office at least
30 days prior to the time loan funds are needed.
A first-time Federal Direct PLUS loan borrower must complete the Federal Direct
Parent PLUS Master Promissory Note (MPN) at www.dlenote.ed.gov using the PIN
assigned to the borrower. If the borrower does not have a PIN, one can be requested at
It is not necessary to select a lender for the Federal Direct Parent PLUS loan. VWCC is a Direct
Lending school and the Parent PLUS loan will be set up with the Federal Direct Loan Program through
the U.S. Department of Education.
The Parent PLUS loan will be accruing interest once the loan disburses and repayment will begin
approximately two months after the full loan disburses. If uneven loan amounts are requested in fall and
spring semesters, repayment will begin earlier. Parent PLUS loan borrowers have the option of deferring
repayment until after the student ceases to be enrolled half time (6 credit hours). This deferment may be
extended into the 6-month period after the student ceases to be enrolled at least half time. Parent
borrowers must call the Direct Loan Servicing Center (DLSC) at 800-848-0979 to request a deferment.
The Parent PLUS MPN must be completed for the initial Parent PLUS loan, but not for subsequent loans.
However, if the Parent PLUS borrower changes, the new borrower must complete a MPN using their
assigned PIN.
The FAFSA and Parent PLUS Loan Application must be completed each year.
Approval or denial of the Parent PLUS Loan is given by Direct Loans and not VWCC.
If the Parent PLUS loan is denied and the parent does not wish to seek an endorser, a student may
request an additional unsubsidized loan in their name by completing the Federal Direct Loan
Request Form at www.VWCC.edu/finaidforms.
All requirements must be complete before the Parent PLUS Loan funds can be disbursed. Failure to
complete all requirements will result in a delay in loan disbursements and possible cancellations of the
loan. Students can check for processing requirements through their myVWCC student account.
Parents have the right to cancel all or part of the Parent PLUS loan prior to the first day of the
semester or within 14 days of notification of the loan. Parents may also reduce the amount of the PLUS
loan or cancel a future disbursement by submitting a written statement to the Financial Aid Office as
soon as possible before disbursement.
