Fall 2022 Loan Processing for Graduate and Law Students

Instructions and deadlines for graduate/law students needing loans in Fall 2022.

Priority Loan Processing Deadline: July 1

We accept loan requests throughout the year. If the July 1 priority deadline has passed, complete all required loan processing steps as soon as possible.

Please allow 10–15 business days for your loan request to be processed.

Loan Processing Steps

* Please be aware that the Grad PLUS Loan Application will not appear in your Self-Service checklist, but it is required if you request that loan.

Loan Status Monitoring

You can monitor the status of your loans in Financial Aid Self-Service > My Awards by clicking “View Loan” to expand the section and show more details. Upon submission of your request, the loan will be marked as “Student Accepted” (if you accepted the full amount) or “In Review” (if you accepted a partial amount). When loan origination is complete, its status will change to “Accepted.”

Loan Disbursement / Refund Timeline

Fall loan disbursements will occur no earlier than one week before the semester begins. Loan funds will be applied to your charges first and then any excess aid will be refunded to you on/after the first day of the semester. Setting your refund preference for direct deposit is recommended.


If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the Financial Aid Office at fao@lclark.edu or 503-768-7090.
