When you arrive
When you first arrive in York, you'll need to provide us with some additional information so we can process your loan payments.
Your loan can't be paid until we have confirmed that you have arrived at the University of York. Once we have confirmation, which we will receive from your department, we will request your first loan instalment (disbursement) from the US Department of Education. This will not arrive until approximately 3 weeks after the start of the academic year.
You must ensure you have sufficient funds to cover your start-up costs and living expenses while you are waiting for your first disbursement.
In order for us to make personal disbursement payments we will require your bank details. Please complete the bank details form as soon as possible after the start of term.
Most students choose to open a UK bank account. If you provide us with details for an overseas bank account, it will take longer for you to receive your personal disbursements. You will also face additional currency conversion costs.
A UK bank account will save you money in currency conversion costs.
If you are a veteran and need to have your VA forms signed, contact Student Financial Support on email@example.com.
Once you have provided us with these details we can request first loan disbursement.
