Borrowers receive a six-month grace period following graduation or from the time their enrollment falls below five credit hours.
  2. Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loans: A student can borrow up to the cost of education minus the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan. To be eligible for this loan, students must have acceptable credit. Direct Loans sets credit criteria according to their own policy independent of the College of Law. The interest rate is fixed at 6.41 percent for loans disbursed on or after July 1, 2013 and before July 1, 2014. The origination fee is 4.288 percent.
