As you prepare to borrow loans, we advise you to borrow only what you need and only what you can repay.
If your award says you're eligible to borrow a Direct Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loan, learn how to apply and complete the process.
Parent PLUS or Private Loans
After comparing your options, you may have decided that a PLUS or private loan matches your needs.
Your financial aid award lists the maximum amount your parent may pursue in a Direct PLUS Loan (dependent students only) or the amount you may pursue through a Private loan. This amount is identified as "PLUS/Private Loan Eligibility" in your award. If you accept this amount online via Blink it indicates your intent to pursue a PLUS or private loan. You or your parent must apply separately with the lender for the loan you select. Applications are available after April 1.
