Any advice with Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Student (PLUS) is greatly appreciated. Two weeks ago, on the USMMA website I completed the application process for the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Student (PLUS). The online status says: "We have everything we need and are just waiting for the school to certify your loan request." FAFSA and other loan related checks are complete. It has been this status for a couple of weeks. Anything else I should be doing, or is this normal?
