Federal Direct PLUS Loans
What is a Federal Direct PLUS Loan?
Federal Direct PLUS Loans are available to parents of undergraduate, dependent students. For the parent to be eligible to borrow the Federal Direct PLUS Loan,  the parent must not have an adverse credit history,  the parent and student must be U.S. citizens or eligible noncitizens, and  the student must be registered with Selective Service.
The interest rate for the Federal Direct PLUS Loan, with a first disbursement on or after July 1, 2012 - June 30, 2013, is a fixed 7.90%. Loan funds are disbursed via electronic funds transfer (EFT) and remitted to Hampden-Sydney in two disbursements, one at the beginning of each semester, and are applied directly to the tuition account. A 4.0% federal fee is deducted from each disbursement. Repayment of principal and interest begins within 60 days following full disbursement of loan proceeds, with up to 10 years to repay. You may request a deferral of repayment on this loan while the student is in school.
