Financial Aid / Scholarships

“A student in a study-abroad program is eligible for aid if the program is approved for academic credit toward his/her degree by the eligible home school at which he/she is enrolled as a regular student. The home school must have a written agreement with the foreign school (or with another U.S. school that contracts with the foreign school) or a single written arrangement with a study-abroad organization to represent an agreement between the home school and the foreign school.” – Financial Aid Handbook

Most forms of financial aid can be continued while studying abroad since your student status is maintained. Studying abroad may make you eligible for other low-interest student loans. If you are planning to apply for any form of financial aid, you must do so several months in advance of your program start date.
