US students should contact the financial aid office at the school you wish to attend for information on Federal Loans.

For information on the Federal Loan Program please visit the Federal Direct Loans website.

NOTE: US students presenting GAMSAT for entry to the 4-Year Graduate Entry Programs will be ineligible to receive a U.S. Federal Student Loan per U.S. Department of Education Regulations.


US students can also apply for a private education loan such as the Sallie Mae Smart Option Student Loan. These loans offer competitive rates, in-school repayment options and other borrower benefits such as rewards and interest rate reductions. For more information on other loan options, visit MyGlobalEd and Earnest.  

Note: RCSI-Medical University of Bahrain is not eligible for the Sallie Mae loan.

Each school has a dedicated Financial Aid Administrator. Should you receive an offer, they will then provide you with information on all aspects of US Federal Student Aid including how to apply, loan amounts, disbursement schedules, etc.
