The Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (PLUS) helps parents assist with their student’s educational costs. PLUS loans enable parents with good credit histories to borrow to pay the education expenses of each child who is a dependent undergraduate student enrolled at least half time (six credit-hours). PLUS loans can be certified for each academic year up to – but not more than – the student’s cost of attendance, minus the amount of financial assistance that the student receives.
