Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loan

The Parent PLUS Loan can help parents finance a UC Berkeley education. 

It provides financing to parents of undergraduate students, who have no adverse credit during the past five years. 

Even recent credit issues can be appealed if you had extenuating circumstances. See the "adverse credit history" information on the Federal Student Aid website.
