Probably none. Your liability for loans (other than student loans) taken out by your dependent depends on whether you co-sign your dependent 's loan or not, you can't be held liable for them. The only exception to this would be for Federal Parent PLUS loans. Federal Parent PLUS loans can be borrowed by the parent(s) of an undergraduate student to help pay for the student?s education and related costs. With a Federal Parent PLUS loan, the parent(s) is completely responsible for the loan and not the student, however there is no obligation for parents to take out a Federal Parent PLUS loan; it is simply an additional option in the Federal Student Loan Program offerings
