Distance Studies:

U.S. students enrolled in distance education programs, telecommunications courses, correspondence courses, or diploma and certificate programs offered by foreign postsecondary schools are not eligible for U.S. Federal loan funding. U.S. law (20 U.S.C. §1088(b)) provides the parameters for U.S. federal student aid eligibility for distance learning programs offered by U.S. postsecondary schools. Within this statute, foreign schools are expressly prohibited, and as such, a U.S. student attending any distance learning program offered by a foreign school is ineligible for US federal student aid programs.

Exchanges - US Students:

While on official exchange from Queen’s University you are considered to be a full-time Queen’s University student and you will be paying your tuition to Queen’s University. Be advised that regulations by the U.S. Department of Education states that you only be eligible to receive federal U.S. Direct Loans only if attending an eligible Title IV school that participates in the federal U.S. Direct Loan program, and the school must be located outside of the U.S.  

You can search for a school on the FAFSA website, choosing the Foreign Country option.

Students participating in a Study Abroad Program are NOT eligible to receive federal subsidized/unsubsidized/PLUS through Queen’s University. You will be paying your tuition fees to the other school (abroad). You must therefore make arrangements with the school they are attending for financial aid. Queen’s University does NOT participate in consortium agreements for Federal student aid. For more information contact the Student Awards Office by email
