Loan Discharged due to Disability

When you submitted your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) indicated that you have prior loans discharged due to disability.

To receive further aid you must provide us with certification from a legally licensed physician stating that your condition has improved and that you 1) have the ability to engage in substantial gainful activity or 2) can attend school.  You must also sign a statement indicting that you are aware that a new student loan cannot later be canceled on the basis of any present impairment unless that condition substantially deteriorates to the extent that the definition of total and permanent disability is again met.

You are not eligible to receive any federal student aid until this situation has been resolved.
