US Federal Aid

Victoria University of Wellington is a full participant in the US Federal Student Aid programme and will administer US Federal Aid loans from February 2020.

Participation in the US Federal Student Aid Programme

Victoria University of Wellington is pleased to advise that it has recently become a full participant in the US Federal Student Aid Programme as a Foreign School.

We are in the process of establishing our US Federal Student Aid Programme Office, which will be open from February 2020. We will be able to process Federal Student Aid loan applications from February 2020 onwards.

Full information about applying will be available on our website from February—or email financial-aid@vuw.ac.nz

Direct loans for US Study Abroad and exchange students

As a foreign institution, Victoria University of Wellington is not authorised to certify student loans or deferments for US students who plan to attend this University for a semester or for a full-year Study Abroad or exchange experience.

The financial administrator at Victoria University of Wellington will complete a consortium agreement with your home university so the financial aid office at your home university can process your financial aid application.
