I want to apply for a Parent PLUS Loan; do I have to submit a FAFSA?

Yes, due to a change in federal regulations, beginning with the 2011-2012 academic year, all students must complete a FAFSA before they can be awarded a Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan. Verification of a valid FAFSA on file will be part of the credit evaluation process performed by the lender (i.e., the US Department of Education).
