Course Fees for Self-Funded Students (excluding students funded by US Federal Loans and UK Government Loans) are to be paid in one instalment by Friday 9 October 2020. Students who do not pay fees will be unable to matriculate (formally join the University). You will be issued with an invoice detailing your course fees in September.
If you are funded by a UK Government loan you will be sent a composite fee invoice which will detail your Student Finance Loan. You will pay any balance of fees due not covered by your loan by 9 October 2020. For each term that you receive your loan into your bank account, you will be expected to pay the loan amount into the College bank account.
If you are funded by a University Scholarship or Studentship or a College Scholarship which covers 100% of your fees, the College will arrange to contact your Department, and we will arrange the payment of your annual course fees. If your fees are partially funded by either a College or University Scholarship then you will receive an invoice stating the balance of fees that will due to be paid by 9 October 2020.
If you are funded by US Federal Loans, your annual course fees are paid termly. If your loan covers 100% of fees due, fees will be deducted automatically from each termly loan disbursement. If your US Federal Loan does not cover 100% of your fees, each term after the loan has been disbursed, the College will advise the exchange rate obtained and you will be expected to pay the balance due on receipt of notification.
Further Information regarding the US Federal Loan Process
For the US Loan process, St Cross College is treated as a foreign school, and the US loan application process may be different to any you have gone through in the past.
The University’s US Loans Team are not automatically notified when a student completes their FAFSA.
In addition to submitting your FAFSA, there are several other steps that you will need you to complete in order to apply for a federal student loan at Oxford.
Please refer to the how to apply tab on the US loans webpage where you can find a step-by-step guide on the actions you will need to complete.
Foreign schools are also subject to additional regulations, so you should check the eligibility tab on the University's US Loans webpage to see if your course is eligible for US federal funding before applying. Please note that the St Cross College Code is G08394 (University Code).
Once you have completed all the steps listed on the US Loans website and submitted your completed cost of attendance (COA) form, they will be able to review and process your loan application. The US Loans Team will contact you if they require any additional information.
To receive the first instalment of your loan in time for the first scheduled payment of Michaelmas Term 2020, your complete application must be received by 11 September 2020 at the latest in order to be processed in time.
