For Graduate Students 2013-14

Graduate students who are matriculated, enrolled at least half-time and are US Citizens or Eligible Non-Citizens are eligible to apply for a  Federal Direct Loan. Students must submit the following items for fall 2013 and spring semester 2014:

1. Free Application for Federal Student Aid 2013-14. The student may complete this on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you have forgotten your PIN number or wish to request one click here.

2. Wesleyan Graduate Student Financial Aid Application and instructions (.pdf) - Completed by the student. 

3. Graduate Student Status Confirmation form (.pdf) - Completed by the Graduate or GLSP Office. 

4. A copy of his/her signed, 2012 Federal Tax Return and W2 form(s). If married, the spouse's federal tax return must also be included, even if he/she filed separately.

5. If selected by the Federal Student Aid Programs, a completed Verification Worksheet.  You will know if you have been selected when you receive confirmation from the Federal Student Aid Programs that your FAFSA has been processed and your Student Aid Report (SAR).

Once these documents are submitted, determination of eligibility for a Federal Unsubsidized Direct Loan will be made by the Financial Aid Office. The maximum loan limit for a Graduate is the cost of attendance (as determined by Wesleyan) or $20,500, whichever is less.

An award letter will be sent to the student detailing their eligibility. A signed award letter must be returned to the Financial Aid Office to then process the loan.

Wesleyan University participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program.
