US Students

SFU is an approved Title IV institution. Students from the US and their parents may apply for assistance through the U.S. Department of Education's office of Federal Student Aid (FSA) through the Federal Direct Loan Program. SFU's Federal Code is G08444.

International schools do not participate in the U.S. Department of Education's grant programs, so you will not be able to obtain a Federal Pell Grant or a Perkin's Loan to get your degree at SFU.

US students also have the opportunity to look into non-governmental loan sources.

Explore the sections below to find step-by-step procedures, deadlines, and other important details to guide you through the US loan application process.

Starting the 2020-2021 academic year, we will now accept your application by email; as long as your application has been signed by hand, and not digitally.  Return your completed application to usloans@sfu.ca.
