Parents and Students Caught in PLUS Loan Struggle

The struggle to pay for college keeps getting tougher, especially for students who need it most. The Washington Post reported that students attending HBCUs are most impacted by tougher qualifications for federal PLUS loans, a program available to parents of dependent undergrad or graduate students. About 28,000 parents of students at HBCUs were denied PLUS loans as of last fall, according to the report. (Photo: GettyImages)
