Federal Direct PLUS Parent Loans
Parents of a dependent undergraduate student are eligible to borrow under the Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) program, pending credit check approval by the U.S. Department of Education.
You must be enrolled at least 6 credit hours to receive a Parent PLUS loan. An approved parent can borrow up to the total Cost of Attendance (COA) minus all financial aid and other resources received by the student. The parent borrower may also elect to defer all interest payments until completion of the student's degree program. If this option is chosen, interest will be capitalized and added to the principal at the time of repayment
