  • The automatic loan option will be “Later” and the full loan offer amount will be in the current amount column.
  • You must accept the full Subsidized Loan, before you can accept any of the Unsubsidized Loan.
  • If you choose to decline the loan offer, and then decide later you want to accept a portion/all of the loan, you will need to speak with a counselor.  
  • Students can’t accept their loans if they have an open “task” on their account.
  • You won’t know whether you have a task or not, but you'll get an error message saying that you'll need to refresh the page and that something needs to be completed. You will need to speak with a counselor so the counselor can look into the task and try to clear it.
