Module 11 in the 17-module self-instructional course on student financial aid administration (designed for novice financial aid administrators and other institutional personnel) focuses on the Stafford Loan, SLS (Supplemental Loans for Students), and Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) student loan programs. It is part of a course that introduces the management of federal financial aid programs authorized by Title IV of the Higher Education Act. It teaches how to outline processing steps in Stafford Loan/SLS/PLUS, recognize and correctly use specific program terms, list student eligibility criteria, and help the school do a good job of loan counseling. Two sections focus on the following: (1) the Stafford, SLS, and PLUS programs (overview, student eligibility and financial need, the loan process, loan application processing at the institution, application processing by lender, institutional processing of a Stafford Loan or SLS check, reporting withdrawals and less-than-half-time attendance, and summary of institutional responsibilities) and (2) recordkeeping requirements for the Stafford Loan/SLS, and PLUS programs. A pre-test, post-test, glossary, acronyms, and chart comparing the Title IV loan programs are provided. Three appendices offer a sample Stafford Loan (GLS) application, a sample SLS/PLUS loan application, and deferments under the Stafford Loan, SLS, PLUS, and consolidation loan programs. Contains two references. (SM)
