Complete Request PLUS Loan
If you are borrowing a Direct GradPLUS loan for the first time, you must also complete the Department of Education's Entrance Loan Counseling. You must be signed in to complete the counseling.
All GradPLUS Loan requests will be processed as an academic year loan with two equal disbursements (one for fall, one for spring). Please notify the Student Financial Aid Office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you request the loan for one term only (fall only or spring only).
What you need:
A Master Promissory Note must be completed in a single session, so be sure to allow yourself enough time to complete it.
Mailing Address (if different than your permanent address)
School name: UND's school code is 003005
Reference information for two people you have known for at least three years. The first reference should be a parent or legal guardian.
Reference telephone numbers
Reference relationships to you
If you have previously completed either a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note or a Direct PLUS loan application, some of this information may be populated for you. You should review any populated information carefully for accuracy.
When you apply for a Direct GradPLUS Loan, the Department of Education will check your credit history. To be eligible to receive a GradPLUS loan, you must not have an adverse credit history. If it is determined that you have an adverse credit history, you may still receive a Direct GradPLUS loan if you obtain an endorser without an adverse credit history. An endorser is someone who agrees to repay the Direct GradPLUS loan if you do not repay the loan. You must complete the Endorser Addendum when you are signed in to www.studentloans.gov.
In some cases, you may also be able to obtain a Direct GradPLUS loan if you document extenuating circumstances related to your adverse credit history.
