Unsubsidized Only

Dependent Students Applying Without Parental FAFSA data – Unsubsidized Direct Loan Only

On your FAFSA, you may have marked “YES” to the following question:

“Are the student’s parents unwilling to provide their information, but the student doesn’t have an unusual circumstance that prevents them from contacting or obtaining their parents’ information?”

By affirming this option, you are requesting that you only receive a Direct Unsubsidized Loan and will NOT be considered for eligibility for any grant or subsidized loans.

If, when completing the FAFSA, you inadvertently selected the option to receive unsubsidized loan only and not provide parent information, you will need to return to the FAFSA and unselect this option to proceed with adding parental information and be considered for all aid eligibility including both the Pell Grant and the Direct Subsidized loan. Please contact us if you need assistance with this process.

If you did intend to proceed with no parent data to receive unsubsidized loan only, the eligible loan amounts are listed below. Interest accrues on unsubsidized loans upon disbursement. For more information about Federal Direct Student Loans click here.

Freshman - 5500 unsubsidized loan

Sophomore - 6500 unsubsidized loan

If you wish to proceed with this option, you will need to complete our Unsubsidized Loan Only form and have your parents certify that they have ended financial support and/or they refuse to complete their portion of the FAFSA.

Please contact our office in person, by phone, or by email to receive a copy of the form or assistance with any questions you may have.
