Using Financial Aid

The Office of International Programs & Services (IPS) recommends that you make an appointment with the Financial Aid office after you have completed Step 3 of your Advising stage. 
You should review Financial Aid's policies in the Study Abroad Financial Aid Program Information document, and the Financial section of your Policies and Considerations form that you will sign on your application. 
  • When will your aid get disbursed?
  • How much is your aid?
  • How much will you need to save out-of-pocket?
  • How much money will you need up-front?
  • Is study abroad affordable now, versus a later semester?
Some students that do not meet with the Financial Aid Office often have to withdraw from study abroad or defer to another semester, when they realize they cannot afford it. DO YOUR FINANCIAL PLANNING BEFORE YOU APPLY TO STUDY ABROAD! The application and participation fees are non-refundable


Almost all outside scholarships have an earlier deadline than the study abroad application deadline through IPS. You should be researching scholarships at the same time you are researching programs. Check out our scholarship webpage for a list of scholarships to get you started
