Completion of Student's Academic Year
Applying for an additional loan (Stafford and/or PLUS): Because students apply for and are awarded aid during different times of the year, each student's academic year will vary. Generally, students are eligible to reapply after they successfully complete all courses in the previous loan period. In addition, 32 weeks of in-class instruction (8 months) must be completed.
