It is your responsibility to provide us with an accurate record of your educational loan debt and annual repayment
obligations. In accordance with the LIPP application instructions, you must submit documentation of your
repayment obligations and evidence of your good standing with each of your lenders. This documentation must
include the following information:
      Required monthly payment amount
      Due date of your next payment
      Current amount due
      Past due amounts (if any)
      Current outstanding debt
      Your account status (current, in deferment until, in grace until, in forbearance, past due, etc.)

Loan certification may be in the form of a copy of your most recent statement (either printed bill or statement
obtained via the web), a letter from your lender verifying the information you submitted, or a copy of a repayment
schedule indicating that your first payment is due after the time you file your LIPP application. We may also
request documentation of your payment history if any discrepancies are noted.
