Federal Stafford Direct Parent Loan Plus

The Direct Parent PLUS Loan is offered to parents of students enrolled at least half time in an Undergraduate 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 the commitment is undertaken by the parent, rather than the student.
