Graduate PLUS Loan

Kennesaw State University participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program (Direct Loan). The Federal Direct Grad PLUS Loan is a loan that can be obtained to help pay the cost of an education. Eligible students borrow directly from the U. S. Department of Education and can borrow up to their cost of attendance minus other financial aid received.

The Financial Aid Office, on a case-by-case basis, may reduce or deny eligibility for Graduate PLUS Loans.  This allowance is based on Federal Statute, HEA 479A(c), and on 34 CFR 685.301(a)(8), which allows a professional judgment to reduce or deny a student a loan. Reviews of outstanding loan debt, length of program of study, and other items will be assessed and the student will be notified in writing if concerns are noted.
