educational expenses at post-secondary schools. This loan may be used separately or in addition to Stafford loans.

How Much Can I Borrow?To determine the amount that can be borrowed with a PLUS loan, simply subtract any financial aid received from the total cost
of your child's education.
What About Interest Rate And Fees?The variable interest rate is set annually by the Department of Education on July 1. Call 1-800-242-BANK to talk
