Direct PLUS Loans: Graduate Students Eligibility Once the Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Loan Aggregate Loan Limit has been Reached

Direct PLUS Loans do not count towards the Direct Subsidized/Unsubsidized Aggregate Loan Limit for Graduate and Professional Students. If a student has exceeded the aggregate loan limit, they are still eligible for the Direct PLUS Loan; however, they must either repay the excess loan amount, or make satisfactory arrangements to repay it before they can receive additional Federal Student Aid, including Direct PLUS Loans.
