Financial Aid

Your costs of studying or interning abroad may be eligible to be applied against financial aid from your home institution. Confirm with your financial aid office that the aid you qualify for may be put toward a study abroad program. Upon acceptance into the program, your program advisor will provide you with the necessary financial aid paperwork.

We will work with you & your institution’s financial aid office throughout the process. Following are a few steps to guide you in the process. If you or your parents/guardians have questions, feel free to give our office a call or send us an email. We’re happy to help!

Step 1: Understanding Financial Aid

Financial aid is any assistance from your home institution towards your degree.

This includes student loans, grants and scholarships. Research  federal and state options for study abroad as well as your own institution.

Step 2: Speak To Your Institution

We recommend you speak to your study abroad/academic advisor and financial aid officer at your institution.

Find out what financial aid options there are and what’s involved in the process to be eligible.         

Step 3: Submit Your Program Budget

Submit your program’s budget to your financial aid office, which will enable you to determine the amount of aid you will receive toward your program.

The budget should include program fees, meals, living costs, insurance, visa fees, transportation, airfare and extracurricular activities. 

Step 4: Make Your Payment

Please ensure relevant payments are made prior to payment deadlines whether you are receiving financial aid or not. Speak to your financial aid officer to ensure they are aware of relevant deadlines.
