• National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS)
We are required to inform the student or parent that the loan will be submitted to the National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS), and will be accessible by guaranty agencies, lenders, and schools determined to be authorised users of the data system

Preferred Lending List for Private Loans
The Preferred Lending List for Private Loans is the complete list of all lenders who will lend to American students who are staying outside the USA where there are no costs or liabilities to the school. Currently the list consists only of SallieMae. If any student finds another lender who will lend to American students who are studying outside the USA where there are no costs or liabilities to the school, then the school will be happy to consider adding that lender to the list.
The University of Limerick has tried to give students an early opportunity to begin their research of student funding. Although every effort has been made to ensure that information provided is both helpful to prospective candidates and accurate at the time of its publication, it is possible that some information may be outdated or superseded before the start of the 2019-2020 academic year.
