United States Student Loans

Oxford Brookes University participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program.

Please read through the information provided below before starting the application process. You may find the process very different to applications made to US schools.

We will be assessing US Loan Financial Aid Packages for the 2022/2023 academic year during June 2022. It can take up to 5 weeks to complete the process but there will be further delays if there are complications with your application. It is your responsibility to ensure that you submit accurate and complete information in a timely manner.

We recommend that you submit your FAFSA for 2022/2023 before the 1st of September 2022 in order to allow for enough time for your application to be processed for the first available disbursement in September 2022.

School code for FAFSA application: G20879

If you:

  • have completed a FAFSA for the 2022/2023 academic year


  • have received an unconditional offer from Oxford Brookes University 

we will contact you and ask you to fill in a form with additional information that will help us assess your loan eligibility and calculate a loan package for you.

After you submit the information we request, we will email you back with a calculation of your loan entitlement and ask you to confirm the amount you want to borrow.  Please see the FAQs and links below for more information.
