The student should be eligible for $5,500 in federal Direct Loans, taken out in their name, for freshman year.

In addition, the parent (you, I presume) can take out a Parent PLUS Loan. Max amount will be the total cost of attendance for the school minus any other financial aid.

If you apply and are turned down for PLUS, the student can take an additional $4,000 in Direct Loans for the first year.


This all assumes that your child completed and submitted the FAFSA before the school's deadline. If so, information on these loans should have been provided in their college's financial aid award letter.

Don't borrow money for a college degree. Work while you go to school. Maybe even take a year off after high school and save up money. Go to a two year community college first...anything to avoid student loans.
