A Graduate Direct Plus Loan allows graduate/professional students to borrow up to their cost of attendance minus any other financial aid they receive. To qualify for this loan, a student must not have adverse credit. Adverse credit is defined as a borrower not having been delinquent on any two debts longer than 90 days. It is highly recommended that the student borrow the Federal Stafford Loan first, before the student borrows the Graduate Direct Plus Loan.
