The Cost of Attendance (COA) is calculated by the university. You cannot borrow more than this amount or appeal its calculation. If the funding you receive does not meet your financial need, you can also look into private loans.
If you applied for a Direct PLUS Loan and have been denied due to adverse credit history, you can complete an extenuating circumstances appeal.
You can start repaying your loans at any time, but you are only required to once you are no longer registered in full-time studies. For more on repayment, visit: www.studentaid.gov.
If you are a dual Canadian/American citizen, you may be eligible for student loans through your home province, with the exception of Ontario.
You can only receive government student aid from one country in a given school year.
