Direct Graduate PLUS Loan Program

Graduate and professional degree students can borrow a Direct PLUS Loan to help cover education expenses. This loan is for students that need additional loan funds once they have received the maximum amounts from their Stafford Loan Program. The maximum PLUS Loan amount you can borrow is your cost of attendance (determined by the school) minus any other financial assistance you will receive. Click here for more information. Graduate Plus Loans are processed after the student’s aid package is completed.
