2014-15 Parent PLUS Loan Request Form (Summer 2014, Fall 2014, Spring 2015) 

Once submitted, the UIW OFA will process the credit request and follow up with the parent, if necessary, to complete any necessary requirements. Parents who are approved for their first Direct PLUS loan will need to sign their Direct PLUS Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) at http://www.studentloans.gov after notified by the OFA to do so via email, mail or telephone (generally 2-3 days after the initial credit approval).

While the MPN is required only once, a new request form is required each year the parent wishes to borrow a loan, as well as each time an increase is requested for a current year.
