    Under the Direct Loan program, PLUS loans are borrowed directly from the federal government (U.S. Department of Education). Eligibility and approval for this loan is based on a credit check, which is performed by the U.S. Department of Education.  Please feel free to contact the Direct Loan Servicing Center at 1-800-848-0979 for any questions regarding the Direct Loan PLUS.


    • The interest rate is a fixed 6.41%.
    • Parent Loans under the Direct Loan program deduct a 4.288% origination fee.
