An applicant cannot be:
You might want to pull your credit reports and see what may be triggering the denial. PLUS loan applicants who are denied on their own can apply with an endorser. Also if you are able to fix whatever is triggering the denial you still may be able to get approved.

Mine came up unreasonably high, and one of my instate schools is low tuition.Back to the PLUS loan, one school gave me a financial aid statement that includes a PLUS loan (along with sub and unsub Stafford). I have yet to be admitted to this school, so I was really confused. I was directed to "activate" my loans. When I asked them what that meant I got a standard non-answer. I went ahead and did it. So was this just a list of financial aid I *could* in theory have, since I don't qualify for the PLUS? If so, how exactly is that helpful? And that's not what it looked like: it had all my FAFSA info listed...You deal with this every day? How do you stay sane?!
