How did you get a loan (in the US) for tuition/living expenses?

Sorry would mind sharing if we can expect to hear about scholarship awards when they announce acceptances or do they notify about finances separately?

At least Cambridge and Oxford seem to notify of scholarships separately.

Thanks for the reply, approximately how long after being admitted did Oxford get back to you regarding scholarship \$\$?

Xandy,

You can apply for a Stafford Loan, which covers up to \$20,500 for tuition/living expenses. Due to changes in the gov't funding of these loans, I think you won't be able to apply before June. Also, I believe that a Grad Plus loan is an option for those needing additional funding. You should def contact Jenny Roberts or Maria Poole (SBS US loan team) for details concerning timing and your particular situation:

you can also get student loans from banks...i got mine from Canada but i imagine it wouldn't be too different in the US. these loans should be able to cover your full year's tuition and expenses.
