Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loans
Parent PLUS Loans enable parents with good credit histories to borrow money to help pay for the educational expenses of undergraduate students enrolled on att least a half-time basis. Parent PLUS Loans are not based on financial need. A credit check is required to ensure the applicant does not have adverse credit. There are no loan limits for the Parent PLUS Loan. Parent borrowers may be eligible to borrow an amount equal to the cost of attendance less any other financial aid the dependent student receives. Interest begins to accrue from the first disbursement date, and repayment begins within 60 days after the final loan disbursement.

Private Education Loans
Private student loans can help you pay for college, generally at better interest than other lines of credit. You should only use private student loans as supplemental funding after y ou have exhausted all other sourses of financial aid, including grants, scholarships, Work-Study, and Federal Direct loans. As with any student loan, be conservative and only borrow what you absolutely need.
