Direct Federal Parent PLUS Loan

Direct Federal Parent PLUS Loans

The William D. Ford Federal Direct PLUS Loan is a low-interest loan available to parents of dependent undergraduate students.  These loans are not based on need but when combined with other resources, cannot exceed the student’s cost of attendance. A credit check on the parent borrower is required and either or both parents may borrow through this program.

Repayment begins within 60 days of final disbursement of the loan within a loan period.  However, parents may request deferment of payments while the student is attending at least halftime.
