Direct Plus Loan (LOAN for Parents)

A Plus Loan enables a parent with a good credit history to borrow to pay the educational expenses of each child who is a dependent, undergraduate student. Eligibility is not based on income. This loan program is intended to supplement the Direct Student Loan Program. Detailed information and application information can be found here http://www.direct.ed.gov/parent.html. A parent may borrow an amount not to exceed the student’s estimated cost of attendance minus any financial aid that has been awarded for the enrollment period.
