PLUS loans are available to two groups: parents of undergraduate students and graduate or professional students. The loan's maximum amount is variable and can be increased to cover up to 100 percent of the cost of attendance. It is a cost-effective alternative to using retirement accounts, income, savings, or home equity loans to fund your or your child's education.
Benefits of a PLUS Loan with EdFed :
Many borrowers prefer the PLUS Loan for its favorable repayment terms with low interest rates. You can borrow up to 100 percent of the cost of college at an 8.5-percent interest rate.
Applying for a PLUS loan is completely free.
While the student is enrolled, no payment is required.
If you have any economic difficulty, you can postpone repayment for up to three years.
The EdFed Second Chance program takes positive, proactive steps to work with borrowers who are initially denied a PLUS Loan. Through the Second Chance program, most borrowers are eventually found eligible to receive a loan.
Depending on what school the student attends, you may not be charged an origination fee.
