Loans

How to proceed with your loan before studying at the Jagiellonian University

You may apply for Federally Guaranteed Stafford loans under the Title IV code of 035973 (which is also sometimes listed as G35973). Please note that there is also a separate code for the Medical School of the Jagiellonian University (012224). All students in all non-medicine programmes (including Biotechnology, European Studies, Polish Studies, Psychology, etc.) must use the 035973 code. Please make sure that you (and your lender) are always using the correct code. Using the wrong code may result in the lender deciding that you are not attending the declared programme and lead to a request for immediate repayment of your loan. The road to getting a Stafford loan is fraught with acronyms, including FAFSA, SAR, ISIR, EFC, EFA, SAY, COA and MPN. The first form that you would need to fill out for a loan is The Free Application for Federal Student Aid(FAFSA)
