Total Amount Requested: $________________ (use whole dollars)
Please note that the maximum amount that you may apply for is the full cost of education, less any financial aid received, including other educational borrowing by you
or the student. Remember to account for the origination fee in your requested amount. For any PLUS Loan, there is currently a 4% origination fee that is deducted
proportionally from each loan disbursement. Direct Loans currently offer a 1.5% up-front rebate on this origination fee, so your fee at disbursement is 2.5%. If you
fail to make 12 on-time monthly payments upon repayment, you lose this rebate. To include the fee in your requested loan amount, divide the desired net amount by
.975. For example, to net $10,000 to the bill, divide by .975 for a total loan request of $10,256.

                                             2010- 2011

We encourage you to submit your Federal Direct PLUS Request form at least two weeks before the bill is due in order for
the loan credit to be available toward the payment required. Please note that if you are applying for financial aid, you
should not submit your loan request form until you have received a financial aid decision and can determine how much
you will need to borrow.

     1. Parent submits a 2010-2011 Federal Direct PLUS Loan Request form
        to the Financial Aid Office. A valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
        ( must be on file prior to certification of a PLUS loan.

     2. The Financial Aid Office will submit the information provided on the PLUS Loan Request form to the U.S.
        Department of Education for approval.

     3. Parent completes the Master Promissory Note electronically at (select “Complete
        New MPN for Parent PLUS Loans.”) The borrower information must match the information that was submitted
        on the PLUS Loan Request form. The borrower signs the promissory note online, using the federal Parent PIN
        (same PIN the parent uses for the FAFSA). (Register for a Department of Education Parent PIN at if you do not already have one. The Parent PIN is not the same as the Student PIN.
        Please keep your Department of Education PIN in a safe place, as you may need to use it in future years.) The
        PLUS MPN is valid and may be used to process subsequent Federal Direct PLUS Loans for up to 10 years after
        the original PLUS MPN is signed.

     4. Morgan State must receive an approval notice from the U.S. Department of Education before credit for a
        pending PLUS loan can be applied to the student’s account.
