Getting Federal PLUS Loans Posted to Your Account

After you have applied and been approved for a Federal PLUS Loan, you must complete the master promissory note to ensure that the funds will be credited to your son or daughter’s student account. The master promissory note is completed online using your Federal PIN (personal identification number). If you completed your son/daughter’s FAFSA online, you may have signed the FAFSA electronically using a Federal PIN. If you do not have or cannot recall your PIN, request a new (or duplicate) PIN from the Federal Student Aid PIN Website. As the parent of the student, you will need to sign with your own parent PIN. You cannot use your son or daughter’s PIN. Allow up to ten business days to receive your PIN.
