Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan

This federal loan is available to graduate and professional students and awarded based on cost, not financial need. The loan, in combination with other aid, cannot exceed the educational costs as determined by Ohio State. Interest does accrue on the Graduate PLUS Loan while a student is enrolled in school.

Borrowers must be U.S. citizens or eligible noncitizens enrolled at least half-time. Recipients must complete a Graduate PLUS form and pass a mandatory background check by the Department of Education.

Students applying should complete the Graduate PLUS Loan Application and return via email to lawfinaid@osu.edu.

If you are unable to email the application, please fax or mail:
