Hey, Kipford I just talked to Tanya over at Case and she explained the loan process to me. On the Case finincial aid website, accept the amount of aid that you want.Then for Federal Stafford and Plus loans we have to choose a lender. Then once your lender approves you, then Case approves the amount of aid. I choose Access Group, and I found them to be pretty helpful. They were quick and helpful in answering all of my questions. You can apply over the phone (800)282-1550 or online.
