Calculating the Amount of PLUS

Use the information below to determine the amount of PLUS you want to borrow.  The maximum amount a parent may borrow is the cost of attendance minus the student’s financial aid and other resources such as scholarships.  Cost of attendance includes tuition, fees, room, board, transportation, and personal expenses.  The cost of attendance is used for financial aid purposes; it does not reflect the amount the student will be billed.

Cost of Attendance

Use the cost of attendance figure that reflects your student.
