Home School Financial Aid and Loans
Students who will be receiving financial aid, including loans, through their home school can have their balance deferred. Only the amount of aid indicated on your award letter from your home school will be deferred. If a balance still remains, you must satisfy the remaining balance owed by paying in full or by enrolling in the Installment Payment Plan.
Aid from your home school is due as follows:
- Students enrolled for Autumn semester only: in October
- Students enrolled for the full year: 50% in October and 50% in February
All funds from home school financial aid awards to be applied to your Hebrew University account must be disbursed directly from your school to the Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) in New York. Please submit a copy of your financial aid award letter from your home school along with a letter from a financial aid officer certifying that funds will be sent directly to the OAA. As an alternative, you may remit payment to the Hebrew University and be reimbursed by your home school.
