Parent PLUS loan
In addition to the Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans available to student borrowers, parents of dependent students are able to borrow additional funds under the Direct Loan PLUS program. PLUS stands for Parent Loans for Undergraduate Students and the details are discussed in the chart below. At Kent State University, this loan is automatically awarded to eligible students that answered "yes" to question #34 on the FAFSA. The PLUS loan requires a credit check that is on the back of the initial Award Letter sent by this office. Simply complete the pre-application form and mail to the Student Financial Aid Office.
