Scholarships and Financial Aid

Federal financial aid (Pell Grants and loans) can be used for study abroad. Students must include the cost of the program and related expenses during the financial aid application process. It is the responsibility of the student to apply for aid prior to enrolling in a study abroad program to insure that funds are received prior to the start of classes abroad. Arrangements must be made with the Financial Aid Office to have funds applied to the student’s university account.
