About this Loan

A PLUS loan must be applied for by the parent of a dependent student. Loan funds are disbursed to the student’s account in halves each semester. Payment terms can be chosen at the time of application. A loan fee of 4.228% will be withheld from the amount borrowed, and interest will begin after the first disbursement.

  • Credit decisions are based on recent credit history, not debt-to-income ratio.
  • Loan comes with a fixed 6.28% interest rate.
  • If the parent is denied the PLUS loan due to credit, the student qualifies for additional federal Unsubsidized Direct Loans ($4,000 for Freshmen and Sophomores and $5,000 for Juniors and Seniors).
