Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans

The PLUS Process At USF

The entire PLUS process can take three to four weeks. The process is simple when you follow these steps:

  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. Complete a Direct Graduate PLUS loan application.

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