As a graduate student at UF, you are eligible to apply for loans through the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program.
Through the federal program, you can obtain federal funds directly from
the U.S. Department of Education. See below to learn more about Federal
and private loan programs. In addition, there are other financial aid
and loan options available to graduate students at the University of
Federal Loan Programs
Stafford Loan Program
- If you file a FAFSA and are
enrolled at least half-time, you may qualify for a Stafford Loan, which
is a long-term, low-interest loan. As a graduate student, you may borrow
up to $20,500 in Federal Direct Loans each year. The FAFSA and your
cost of education will determine how much you can borrow. Your
enrollment level also plays a role in your loan eligibility, but you
must be enrolled at least half-time, which is at least four and one-half
(4.5) hours of credit in a term.Graduate PLUS Loans
- You may also have the option of applying for a Graduate PLUS loan if
your unsubsidized loan does not cover all of your educational costs.

Federal Unsubsidized and Graduate PLUS loan funds. You can complete the
Master Promissory Note and entrance counseling for the Federal
Unsubsidized loans and apply for a Graduate PLUS loan at Student Loans
Private Loan Options
You may wish to
consider one of the alternative loans that are available to graduate
students in lieu of the Direct GradPLUS Loan. As the borrower, you must
initiate the loan, which must subsequently be certified by the Office of
Financial Aid. Generally, you must be creditworthy, and a cosigner must
be creditworthy as well. While you may be able to borrow without a
cosigner, having a cosigner may reduce the fees and/or the interest rate
on the loan. A careful review of interest rates and their trends may be
of value as you decide whether the Direct Grad PLUS or the alternative
loan is the right choice for you. Please visit FASTChoice
to explore some private loan options.
many graduate students, employer reimbursement is a good option to help
cover the cost of your education. If your company offers employer
reimbursement, you must contact the University's Business Office
to complete the University's Company Reimbursement Form
prior to each session you enroll in.
