NOTE: To receive a student loan, a student must be enrolled in six (6) credit hours and be degree seeking from an institution of higher learning.
The Direct PLUS Loan is an unsubsidized loan for the parents of dependent students and for graduate/professional students. PLUS Loans help pay for educational expenses up to the cost of attendance minus all other financial assistance. Interest is charged during all periods.
All students who complete a FAFSA will be offered a loan if they have availabilty in their cost-of-attendance budget.
Once we process your FAFSA you will receive an award letter regarding any aid you are receiving at that time (additional notices may be sent if you receive more awards). Follow the instructions in the letter to accept or decline the loans offered to you. You can also choose to only borrow a portion of the amount offered; if you feel that you will need to borrow additional funds over what you have been offered please contact our office to check your eligibility.
