Please note that the Federal school Code for Liverpool Hope University is; G41159

Study Abroad students must contact the Financial Aid Office if enrolled at their home campus for all matters concerning their Financial Aid.

Quick guide to financial aid

Please note that this section is a very brief introductory guide to US Financial Aid and the stages that generally you will need to complete. Please familiarise yourselves with the other tabs before you start the application process.

Step 1 Complete free application for federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

Step 2 Once your Student Aid report (SAR) has been received contact Liverpool Hope University who will arrange to view your SAR.

Step 3 We will write to you detailing the loans that you are eligible for based on the cost of attendance and your estimated family contribution (EFC)

Step 4 Confirm to us your intention to take out the loan and the amounts you intend to borrow.

Step 5 Complete your loan counselling by going to www.studentloans.gov

Step 6 A copy of the signed promissory note should be sent to us.

Step 7 For new students we will send you an official letter, the wording of which has been agreed with the UK border agency which you will need when you apply for your visa.

Step 8 The money is disbursed in either 2 or 3 payment dates. Liverpool Hope University will receive the money straight into our account from the Department of Education. We will have contacted you previously to give us your bank details (it would be better if you have an English bank account to speed up your funding) and once the money is in our account we can make the disbursements to you after deducting any applicable tuition/accommodation charges. As the funding once requested can take 5-10 working days to reach our account it is advisable to bring some money with you for necessary expenses whilst awaiting the opening of your UK bank account and the monies to become available. A figure between £400-£500 would be advisable.
