Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan Program

Welcome to the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan Program page for LMU. The Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan is a low-cost education loan for graduate students. Approval for this loan is based on the credit history of the student borrower, not on the student's income. To proceed with the online process, the studentborrower should follow the steps below:

 

  1. Go to www.studentloans.gov, and login with your FSA ID.  Once logged in, select the "Apply for a PLUS Loan" link.  Next, select "Direct PLUS Loan Request for Graduate/Professional Student Borrowers" as the type of loan in order to begin the application and credit check process.  
  2. After applying for the Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan, sign the Electronic Master Promissory Note (eMPN) by clicking on “Complete Master Promissory Note” and then choosing “PLUS MPN for Graduate/Professional Students” as the type.  For assistance with this process, contact Direct Loans at 1.800.557.7394.

 

NOTE:  The Federal Graduate PLUS Loan is a low-cost education loan for graduate students to help cover the cost of attendance minus financial aid the student has already received.  Approval for the PLUS loan is based on credit history, not income.  LMU must receive confirmation of your Master Promissory Note before a loan will be certified and available for use toward enrollment expenses.
