Postby greadad » Wed May 08, 2013 12:57 pm

We qualified for the full complement of federal loans ($5500) from each school to which my daughter was accepted. However, she would like to go on an accredited gap year program overseas. It gets a full compliment of 30 credits from oxford university in England. We live in NY. Can i get the federal loans to for the gap year program. thank you. mike

It may qualify either as a foreign school or if it's part of a US program abroad. To find out details, you should contact the program directly, or call the Department of Education at 800-433-3243 to check if federal aid is available.
