U.S. Federal Student Aid application

Hult International Business School participates in the Federal Direct Student Loan programs.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is primarily used to determine whether a student qualifies for federal financial aid and how much aid will be received. Federal loans are not free money and must be paid back. The amount that may be borrowed and the loan type(s) depend on financial need and student enrollment status. Students are encouraged to borrow no more than they need to complete their educational program. To start the online financial aid application, students who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens may apply by following the steps below.

Application process

1. Go to www.fafsa.ed.gov to complete your 2017-2018 FAFSA using 2016 tax information. Hult International Business School’s school code is 041432.

2. Complete the Federal Financial Aid Request.


3. To receive Federal Direct student loans, you must also follow the link to complete a Master Promissory Note (MPN) and Entrance Counseling at https://studentloans.gov. The annual Direct Loan amount is USD20,500.

4. If additional funding is required and you want to apply for a Graduate PLUS Loan, the PLUS Loan is credit-based. Note that the terms for PLUS Loans are different from Direct Loans. PLUS Loans are limited to the cost of attendance less other financial aid.

5. If you have federal loans from prior institutions, you may defer those loans. Please see Student Loan Deferment Instructions below.
