Graduate Stafford Loan Request Form



Students MUST have a current FAFSA on file before submitting a loan request form.

Graduate and professional students are eligible to borrow up to $20,500 annually in Direct UNSUBSIDIZED Stafford Loans. As the borrower, you will be responsible for the interest that accumulates while you are in school.

Important Note: BEFORE submitting this form students should register for all classes they are taking, in both sets of bi-term classes. Students should also submit loan request for both bi-terms at once. Please consider your full semester needs before submitting a loan request.


Please indicate the dollar amount you would like to borrow for tuition, fees, books, and other educational expenses.


Next Step: An official award letter from UC will be emailed to you indicating the loan approval. You are required to accept or decline your loan as part of the awarding process. Additionally, if this will be your first semester of Federal Direct Loan assistance at UC, you MUST complete Federal Direct Loan Entrance Counseling and sign a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan Master Promissory Note (MPN) at in order for your loan to be disbursed to your student account.

Attention: The Financial Aid Office is not processing Fall loan requests at this time. The Fall loan request will be made available to complete at a later date.
