United States Student Loans

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

The first step for all students, new and continuing, is to submit your FAFSA for 2024/25. Applications for January entry are open and you should apply as soon as possible.  Applications for September entry will be processed when our new loan cycle opens in June 2024. It can take up to 5 weeks to complete the process but any complications with your application may mean your application takes longer than this. It is your responsibility to ensure that you submit accurate and complete information in a timely manner.

For September starters; applications received after 23rd August 2024 may be too late to receive the first available disbursement in September 2024. If you are a January start or a September start and you are making a late application, please email us so we are aware of your application.

The School Code for FAFSA application: G20879. Full information about this and the other information the Federal Student Aid department will need can be found in section “5. How do I apply?” below.

We will contact you for any additional information we need. Please respond to these emails in a timely manner and check with us if you are unsure what we require.
