Financial Aid Policy Changes for Study Abroad Enables More Students to Use Aid

July 2013


Eligible students can now apply their full financial aid package (excluding work study grants) to fund any semester-long exchange program. 

Exchange programs include the Asian Studies program in Hirakata, Japan, Business offerings at the Zagreb School of Economics and Management in Croatia, the Irish American Scholars Program and all ISEP-Exchange options. Exchange programs are often best-suited for Juniors or Seniors.

However, students are not limited to participating in exchange programs.

The Center for International Education partners with several trusted program providers to enable students to study abroad in locations around the world. Students participating in approved semester-long affiliate programs can take up to $4,000 of their SAU scholarship package. Our affiliates also offer scholarship opportunities.

Students can apply state and federal financial aid to any semester study abroad program. 

This change opens up a larger variety of programs to students and also enables more students to use more of their financial aid to study abroad. The policy goes into effect starting in Spring 2014.

Students should meet with the Center for International Education and the Financial Aid office for more information regarding funding for study abroad.
