All U.S. students applying for Direct Loans are required to fill out and submit the form listed below (see first link below) to the UofM Financial Aid & Awards office by June 15, 2015. This form is required to process your loan in a timely fashion to meet the tuition fee deadline.
After receiving all of your required documentation, you will receive an eligible loan letter to your University of Manitoba email account (unless you specify a different account to send information to). This letter will indicate your eligible loan amount(s) and will include further rights and responsibilities that you will have to agree to prior to receiving loan funds.
Know your Loan Limits! Before you think of applying for funding, know how much you can borrow! Many first year students are not eligible for more than USD$5,500 for the entire school year. In addition, funds cannot be released to first-time loan borrowers until they've attended at least 30 days of school so prepare your money plan today!
Plan ahead - learn about money management (how to budget); Satisfactory Academic Performance (SAP) policy; Canadian banking and study visas. Find all of this and more on our WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW page.
