Complete your 2013-14 FAFSA before you submit your loan request
To be eligible for a Direct Unsubsidized Loan, you must be:
- accepted and matriculated in a degree granting program
- making satisfactory academic progress
- enrolled at least half-time
If you are involved in other degree requirements (dissertation, comprehensive exam preparation, etc.) with a credit equivalency that will raise your enrollment to at least half-time, you can file an enrollment certification form with your school or department to become eligible. This certification must be processed by Academic Records before you can receive loan proceeds.
All Federal Direct Unsubsidized loan borrowers must complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) at studentloans.gov. First time borrowers at Fordham University must complete an Entrance Counseling Session that is also available at studentloans.gov.
