Keep in mind, the HPSL Loan is based on need and, as such, all applicants will be selected for verification so additional information will be requested.

Parental information is required to determine eligibility, regardless of the dependency status of the student. Interested students must have their parent’s information on their 2023-2024 FAFSA.

Please note, submitting the paperwork for HPSL funding does not automatically mean that you will be eligible for these funds. A thorough review of your financial aid file will be conducted to determine eligibility.
