Enter the total amount of Direct PLUS Loan funds for which you expect to apply.

Graduate PLUS Loans are available to graduate and professional degree students. Financial need is not a requirement.

PLUS Loans are unsubsidized: the borrower is responsible for interest that accrues during the life of the loan. Borrowers can request a loan for up to the full cost of attendance minus any other financial aid.

TIP: Graduate and professional students that borrow a PLUS Loan receive an automatic deferment while in school.
