Federal Direct Graduate/Professional PLUS Loan

Description:

A loan funded by the U.S. Department of Education and awarded by the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid (OSFA) which graduate and professional students can use to help pay for their education expenses.

The Department of Education will defer repayment of the loan principal while the student is enrolled at least half-time, and for the first six months after the student graduates, leaves school, or enrolls in fewer than half-time.

The student is responsible for paying the interest on the principal balance during all periods, including times of approved deferred principal payments; however, the student can elect to capitalize the interest.
