The Federal Direct PLUS is a loan parents of dependent undergraduate students may apply for to help with the student's educational costs. PLUS applicants must meet the general eligibility requirements for federal student aid as well as meet credit criteria for obtaining the loan. Students must be enrolled at least half-time.
PLUS applicants may apply by printing both pages of the Federal Direct PLUS Loan application form. Applicants must fill out the application in its entirety returning it to the Northland financial aid office for processing. Once credit is approved the parent must also complete the master promissory note online before funds can be disbursed.
If parent applicant is denied based on credit criteria they will be notified via postal mail and the student should contact the financial aid office regarding additional unsubsidized loan eligibility.
Please visit the financial aid office for more information.
Exit Counseling will help you understand the rights and responsibilities that come with your student loan.
