Federal Direct Plus Loan For Graduates Application

Application Process

  1. When completing your application, pay close attention to the option “Authorization to use Loan Funds to Satisfy Other Charges.” Graduate PLUS loan applications that did not select the option to authorize proceeds to pay of all charges on the student account could result in a balance remaining after the payment of charges such as tuition, housing, and meal plans.  Other charges such as parking fines, football tickets, etc. may remain on the account even after a refund is issued.

  2. Complete the Graduate PLUS Request Process online at www.studentaid.gov. You must sign in using your federal FSA ID. If you do not have a federal FSA ID, you may create one at studentaid.gov/fsa-id/create-account/launch.
  3. If you have not received Graduate PLUS loan at The University of Alabama previously, complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and entrance counseling online at studentaid.gov.
  4. Allow 10 business days for your application to be processed. During peak seasons, the application process may take up to 3 weeks.
