Federal Stafford Direct Grad Plus Loan

The Direct Grad PLUS Loan is offered to graduate and professional students enrolled at least half time in a Graduate/Professional program of study at Grand Canyon University. PLUS loans differ from other Federal and Perkins Loans in that it can cover a larger amount of costs, has a higher interest rate and is a credit based loan.

All new students at Grand Canyon University are required to complete an entrance counseling session before loan funds can be disbursed. All graduate students at Grand Canyon University who are interested in taking out a Grad Plus loan must complete a Direct Grad Plus Loan Master Promissory note and will be required to do so before loan funds can be disbursed.

Follow these steps to complete the process:

Access this link for both Entrance Counseling and completion of the Grad Plus Master Promissory Note: studentloans.gov
