Selecting a Lender

This section provides an overview of lender selection and discusses how to view lenders selected by the students.

Lender Selection enables students to select an FFELP lender or to change a previously assigned lender:

  • If the student has not been awarded, the system provides a Student Finances link to indicate a lender to be picked up by Loan Origination.

  • If a student has been awarded an FFELP loan, the system displays the lender and provides a link that enables the student to change the lender if the loan is not originated or transmitted to the guarantor.

  • If a student changes the lender after borrowing from another lender, a message is optionally displayed to warn them against doing so for repayment reasons.

  • If the loan has been originated or transmitted, the lender is displayed but the student cannot change it. A message tells the student to contact the financial aid office if they need to change the lender.
