Federal Parent PLUS Loans are disbursed directly to students’ billing accounts. When applied in combination with student loans and other financial aid, Parent PLUS loans are the first to be disbursed.

Borrowers may elect to receive refunds of overpayments directly in certain cases. Any credit balance up to the amount of the student’s financial aid award is first refunded to the student. If a credit balance remains, that amount can be refunded to the Parent PLUS borrower(s).

Direct Deposit

A letter will be mailed which contains an identification (business partner) number and verification code. Upon receipt, the borrower(s) should navigate to the linked website below.
