Application Process for Student Loans
Complete the 2015-2016 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as soon after January 1 as possible. The form is available online. (Completing the online form is faster and prevents many of the common errors associated with the traditional paper form.)
Note to international students: Only US citizens and eligible non-residents may apply for federal loans. International students should contact the Office of Student Financial Planning at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The WFSM School Code is E00524.
Estimating financial data is acceptable if 2014 tax documents are not available at the time you are completing the form.
Your SAR (Student Aid Report) will arrive about 4 weeks after you submit the FAFSA. The SAR indicates your expected family contribution, which is used to determine your eligibility for federal student loans.
The SAR also lists the information you reported on the FAFSA, so that you can check your information for accuracy. If no corrections are needed, keep the SAR for your records. If you listed the WFSM school code in the college release section of your SAR, we will receive your information electronically.
Award letters will be sent via email. Review your award letter from Wake Forest School of Medicine and accept or reject loans.
Go to www.studentloans.gov to complete mandatory entrance counseling and your Master Promissory Notes (MPN's). These are requirements under the guidelines of the Federal Aid program and Federal loans cannot be disbursed until these steps are completed.
