Please note: Credit decisions are good for 180 days. If credit approval has expired, increases in PLUS Loans or new PLUS Loan applications will automatically generate a new credit check.
The Parent PLUS Loan can help parents finance a UC Berkeley education.

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