News and Announcements

New Fees for Direct Loans First Disbursed after October 1st

Due to the federal sequester, the loan fees charged to Direct Loan borrowers for Subsidized, Unsubsidized and PLUS loans first disbursed after October 1st will increase slightly.

  • The loan fee for Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans will increase from 1.072% to 1.073%.
  • The loan fee for Direct Parent PLUS and Graduate PLUS loans will increase from 4.288% to 4.292%.

Remember: This is only in effect for loans first disbursed after October 1st. So, if you have received a disbursement of a loan for 2014-15 before that date, the remaining disbursement(s) of the loan will continue to be charged at the old fee.

Privacy of Educational Records and Access to Information

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) prohibits the University of Denver from releasing a student's financial aid records to anyone—including parents—without the student's written consent, regardless of his or her age or who is paying the student's bills.

If you wish for a member of our office to speak to your parent, spouse or another 3rd party about your financial aid, you will need to complete a FERPA Release. To authorize recipients and the information they can receive, visit the Student tab of PioneerWeb and click on the "Release of Student Records" link
