Student Loans

If you are a new student to Chadron State College and pursuing federal student loans, you will need to complete both the Direct Loan Entrance Loan Counseling and Direct Loan Master Promissory Note before your aid will disburse to your student account. You may be asked to complete a Loan Overlapping Form if you are transferring from another institution.

Parent PLUS Loans

PLUS Loans are federal loans that parents of dependent undergraduate students can use to help pay for educational expenses. The U.S. Department of Education is the lender, and the loan is subject to credit approval.

If your parent is pursuing the Parent PLUS Loan to help pay the students’ educational expenses, there are a couple of steps before this award can be processed:

  1. Accept the Parent PLUS Loan in the student’s MyCSC account
  2. Have the parent complete the Award Offer and Acceptance Agreement
    • After the parent has submitted the form to the START Office, Direct Loans will complete a credit check. You will be notified by Direct Loans within 7-10 days via email or a letter in the mail for the decision on the credit.
      • If the credit is denied, the student would need to let us know that, and other options can be explained to the student.
      • If the credit is accepted, the parent would need to complete the PLUS MPN so the funds can disburse to the student’s account.
