Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loans

The PLUS Process at USF

  1. Make sure you have completed a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with USF's school code #001537. Although the PLUS loan is not need based, a FAFSA is required to have a Federal PLUS loan processed at USF. Please note that a new FAFSA is required each academic year.

  2. The parent should complete a Direct PLUS loan application.

Once the application and any additional requirements are complete, the school will determine final eligibility.
