US Federal Loans & Montgomery GI Bill
US Federal Loans
Swansea University is a participating institution in the US Government Federal Direct Loan Programme. We offer assistance to a growing number of students seeking loans to study for one of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
What loans can I apply for?
- Direct loan - Subsidised Stafford
- Direct loan - Unsubsidised Stafford
- Direct loan - PLUS loans (Graduate PLUS loans or Parent loans for dependant undergraduate students)
- Private loans
Eligibility and How do I apply?
Montgomery GI Bill
To use your GI Bill to study at Swansea we first need to seek approval from the department of Veterans Affairs for your chosen course of study.
Swansea University has a number of programmes of study which have already been approved by the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and students are able to use their GI Bills to help fund their study at Swansea.
Please contact us for more information on whether your chosen course of study has already been approved.
For more information on the Montgomery GI Bill visit the Department of Veterans Affairs website www.gibill.va.gov
Before applying for a Private Loan, students are encouraged to apply for the maximum amount they are eligible for in Federal Stafford loans. (Total borrowing can not exceed the total Cost of Attendance).
Graduate level students and parents of dependant undergraduates may find a Federal PLUS loan more competitive than a private loan.
At Swansea we do not have a preferred lender but we have worked well with the following organisations offering private loans
Sallie Mae private loans
We are also happy to work with any other loan provider you may identify. Once you have selected your lender for your private loan please contact the US Loans Officer at Swansea with details of the loan you have applied for, if possible please submit a copy of the application form, so that the correct school certification can also be submitted.
