My school (WSU) automatically did the Gradplus loan. They have a break down on my student center. It shows the $20,500 and then what is gradplus. The amount they gave me fits what the estimated cost of everything is on the financial WSU website. There's categories for things which is how they determined what to loan me (tuition, books, board, living expenses, transportation). I submitted the FAFSA in January and received a package before I was even accepted to the school.
ive emailed the school basic questions like how does summer aid work and can people ask for more, etc? Mainly because I've never taken out student loans and just want to make sure I understand everything before I accept my loans on my student center.
If anyone has any more info, I'll gladly take it
