Graduate and Professional Students The Federal Unsubsidized Stafford loan is a fixed-rate federal student loan available to graduate and professional school students. Federal Stafford loans are the most common way to pay for graduate and professional school. As of July 1, 2012, only unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans are available to graduate students. Listed below are some benefits of the Federal Stafford Loan for Graduate and Professional Students: Low fixed interest rate (unsubsidized). Students may borrow up to $20,500 per year. No payments while enrolled in school. Not based on credit standing. Graduate Combined Loan Limit (including all undergraduate loans) $138,500 Students must complete a new Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling at studentaid.gov before loans can be processed. Direct PLUS Loan amounts for parents of graduate/professional students There are no fixed annual or aggregate loan limits for Direct PLUS Loans. A graduate or professional student may be awarded a Direct PLUS Loan for up to the student’s COA minus other EFA. Therefore, a graduate/professional student who has received the maximum Direct Unsubsidized Loan amount for an academic year may have additional Direct PLUS Loan eligibility. Similarly, the total Direct PLUS Loan amount borrowed by a parent on behalf of a dependent student may not exceed the student’s estimated COA minus other EFA the student receives for the period of enrollment. This is the only borrowing limit for Direct PLUS Loans.
