Sallie Mae Private Loan
Some students choose to combine a federal loan with a Sallie Mae loan. Please be aware that taking a Sallie Mae loan does not enable you to borrow more, and most students are able to take their full cost of attendance total using federal loans.
If you are planning to take private loans, please state the reason below, as federal loans are generally the cheaper option. It is essential that you read the information on applying for a Sallie Mae loan at Oxford before you apply for the loan.
IMPORTANT - Don't delay your loan being processed
Complete your loan agreement (MPN) for each loan type
Please complete your loan agreement (MPN) on StudentLoans.gov. As we are a foreign school, new MPNs must be completed for every year of study you apply for a federal loan at Oxford regardless of whether you are a new or continuing student. You must complete an MPN for each type of loan you are taking. Based on the loan amounts you have indicated above, you must complete:
An applicant must complete entrance counselling for each loan type they are taking. The entrance counselling on the StudentLoans.gov will fulfil counselling requirements for Direct Subsidized Loans, Direct Unsubsidized Loans and Direct PLUS Loans.
You do not need to complete this step if you have completed entrance counselling which covers all of the above loan types in a previous institution or year of study.
Please note that Financial counselling for the PLUS loan type is not entrance counselling, please complete the entrance counselling for all of the above loan types at the entrance counselling on the StudentLoans.gov.
