Eligibility and Loan Limits


To be eligible, you must be:

  • Accepted and matriculated in a degree granting program
  • Making satisfactory academic progress
  • Enrolled at least half-time
  • Not  be in default on any federal student loan

If you are involved in other degree requirements (dissertation, comprehensive exam preparation, etc.) with a credit equivalency that will raise your enrollment to at least half-time, you can file an enrollment certification form with your school or department to become eligible. This certification must be processed by Academic Records before you can receive loan proceeds.

Based upon the student's credit worthiness, a student may borrow up to their cost of attendance minus all other aid in a Graduate PLUS Loan.

Loan Limits 

Annual Loan Limit: Up to Cost of Attendance Minus Other Aid

Aggregate Lifetime Limit: None
