Parent Plus Loans
I need some clarification on something. For a parent plus loan, it says that you can borrow up to the cost of attendance minus any financial aid received by the student. Next year I will have three kids in college at the same time and although they will have to take some federal student loans, I'd like to keep it to a minimum and take on most of the burden myself. Does a student have to take the full amount of federal student loans ($5500 for freshman) before I can take a parent plus loan?15 replies
