Please make a selection below to complete the processes required to secure your Federal Direct Stafford Loan, or to learn how to apply for a Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan.

  • ASLA - All students and parent seeking a federal loan must complete the new Annual Student Loan Acknowledgement (ASLA) at least once every award year. The ASLA is new for the 2021-2022 award year and must be completed before any student or parent loan funds can be disbursed. By completing the ASLA, you are acknowledging that you understand that all loans must be repaid, as well as how much you currently owe in federal loans. When completing the ASLA, you will be given data about FSU, such as cost, graduation rate, and average total debt borrowed per student based on each student's current program of study. You will also be provided with an estimated monthly loan payment, the amount of loans that you have borrowed so far, as well as program borrowing limits (lifetime aggregate loan limits). You can complete the ASLA online.

FSU'S current default rate is 6.6%. A default rate is the percentage of a school's borrowers who entered loan repayment during a specific year and then defaulted on that loan prior to the end of the next fiscal year. If a student has defaulted on a loan, then that student is more than 270 days behind on their loan payment. The national cohort default rate average is currently 9.7%.
