  • ·Federal Direct Graduate Plus Loan - A credit based federal loan where the student is the borrower. Students may borrow up to the Cost of Attendance minus any financial aid the student is receiving. A credit-worthy endorser (co-signer) may be required by the lender. Students must first have their eligibility determined for the Federal Direct Student Loan before borrowing the Graduate PLUS loan.
