    Abstract: The Federal PLUS Loan Master Promissory Note (Direct PLUS 
Loan MPN) serves as the means by which an individual applies for and 
agrees to repay a Federal Direct PLUS Loan. The Direct PLUS Loan MPN 
also informs the borrower of the terms and conditions of Direct PLUS 
Loan and includes a statement of borrower's rights and 
responsibilities. A Direct PLUS Loan borrower must not have an adverse 
credit history. If an applicant for a Direct PLUS Loan is determined to 
have an adverse credit history, the applicant may qualify for a Direct 
PLUS Loan by obtaining an endorser who does not have an adverse credit 
history. The Endorser Addendum serves as the means by which an endorser 
agrees to repay the Direct PLUS Loan if the borrower does not repay it.
