Each university gets only a limited pool of funds for SEOG and Perkins loans. Unfortunately, financial aid staff have to make hard choices about who gets them and who doesn't. If your daughter was not awarded them this year, I'm afraid there isn't much recourse. There are many more eligible students than there is money available.
If she's just starting her second year, you're looking at three years of those PLUS loans. Have you and your daughter considered the prospect of transferring to a cheaper, in-state university?
