The U.S. Department of Education operate a Direct Loan programme. Eligible students can borrow educational loans to assist with the cost of living. There are three loan types.
If you are ineligible for U.S. federal loans, you may be able to use a U.S. private student loan to support your studies
- Subsidized (Undergraduates only) (Federal)
- Unsubsidized (Federal)
- Plus (Federal)
Students are strongly advised to consider the Direct Lending programme prior to any private loan option.
You should borrow unsubsidized loans first, if there is further need based on your cost of attendance you should then look at borrow a Plus loan.
You cannot borrow more than your annual maximum cost of attendance
