Good Choices Packet

It is important that you understand the conditions of borrowing a Private Loan before your application is processed.

  1. Have you considered a Federal Direct Stafford Parent PLUS Loan? The Parent PLUS loan is potentially a better funding option and should always be considered before pursuing a private loan.

  2. Review you Financial Aid Award before you consider a private student loan.

  3. Read your private loan materials and learn the conditions of the loan.

We have developed the "Good Choices" packet to help you make informed decisions today by thinking about your future repayment responsibilities. This will help you avoid repayment difficulties or default on a loan in the future.

"Good Choices" must be completed before borrowing a Private Loan at Hawkeye each year.

  1. Complete the "Good Choices" forms [pdf] and submit the completed packet to our office.

  2. Make an appointment with a Financial Aid Advisor (optional).
