Direct Lending is Coming to UW Oshkosh
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is changing its federal student loan process to better serve its students and to ensure continued access to student loan funds. Starting with the 2010-2011 academic year all federal student loans will be processed through the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, also known as Direct Lending.
Applying for Aid
All students must reapply for financial aid each year that they plan to attend UW Oshkosh and receive aid. To reapply for aid, make sure you meet the eligibility requirements and then follow the steps to apply for aid. It’s important for students to remember that they must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to continue to receive financial aid.
Receiving Aid and Paying your Bill
Once you have completed the process of applying for aid, you must respond to your financial aid award and undergo loan processing in order to receive aid. After the aid has been electronically disbursed to your student account, you can pay your bill at the Cashier’s Office or refer to Student Accounts for any questions regarding your bill.
Students must begin repaying their loans upon graduating, leaving school or dropping below half-time enrollment, and following a grace period — six months for federal Stafford loans and nine months for federal Perkins loans.
