Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan

The Graduate PLUS loan differs from the Parent PLUS Loan. To be eligible, you must be a graduate or professional degree student continuing their education beyond their undergraduate degree. If you are a parent of a Dependent undergraduate student you may use a PLUS loan, but that is in your name. Please see the other section for information if you are a parent.

This loan does require you to complete an application, with a credit check, and also to complete a Grad PLUS Master Promissory Note.
