SPOTLIGHT

Slippery Rock University awards Federal Direct Loans to eligible students.  Also, students and parents can borrow PLUS (for parents of undergraduate students or Graduate students) loans through Department of Education Direct Loan Program or an Alternative Private Education Loan to meet their educational expenses each year up to the cost of attendance.  

Federal Direct Loans require that all new borrowers complete Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN).  Slippery Rock University also requires students to accept, decline or cancel their awarded Direct Subsidized and/or Unsubsidized Loans on MySRU.
