There are several sources of financial assistance for eligible students from the USA. These include federal aid (Direct Loans) available for US citizens or eligible non-citizens who are enrolled at least half-time in a degree programme, making satisfactory academic progress, and not in default or owing a return payment on a grant or loan.

Federal Aid (Direct Loans)

The University of Plymouth participates in the William D Ford Direct Loan Program.
Direct Loans are low-interest loans for eligible students and parents to help pay for the cost of your education at University. The lender is the U.S. Department of Education rather than a bank or other financial institution.
For the latest, accurate, information on the types of Direct Loans available, as well as associated interest rates and repayment plans, you can take a look at the Direct Loan for Students page on the U.S. Department of Education website.
Once you have submitted your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) you may receive an email about being eligible a Federal Pell Grant. You are unable to receive this Grant if you attend a Foreign School such as the University of Plymouth.

Private loans

Students may explore the possibility of borrowing additional private, credit-based finance to assist them in meeting their educational costs. The University will work with private lenders, such as Sallie Mae.

Other sources of funding

The University has available various scholarships to eligible students. Please see our information onĀ  funding, scholarships and bursaries for more details.
