Loans and Federal Aid

Please be reminded that DKU is not a participating school for Title IV funding (the U.S. Federal Student Aid Program) and therefore DKU students are not able to take out a traditional U.S. student loan. Although Duke University has this designation, it is not applicable to DKU students, even while they study at Duke, because Duke is not their home institution. Study Away students are considered guest students from the perspective of the U.S. Federal Student Aid Program. If you have questions about financial aid, please direct them to the DKU Financial Aid office at  and someone will be glad to assist you. Kindly note that the Duke Office of Financial Aid is not able to assist DKU students in this matter.
