07/05/2012 - Due to Federal mandated changes to the origination fees deducted from your Direct Loan(s) by the U.S. Department of Education, loans for the Summer 2012 semester(s) that were not disbursed prior to July 1, 2012 must be canceled and re-originated.
DO NOT BE ALARMED. Your loan will be re-originated with the new origination fee and visible once again on your myChargerNet account as soon as possible.
We apologize for any inconvenience, but these changes are mandated by the Federal government and cannot be implemented without the cancelation of your existing loans. Thank you for your patience and please continue to monitor your myChargerNet account.
