Financial Aid Information

About Financial Aid

The first step for any student interested in financial aid is to complete the application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  Apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The financial aid office staff at your campus can give you complete details.

Students studying abroad are also eligible to apply for other state and federal financial aid programs such as: Pell Grant, FSEOG, Stafford Loans, Cal Grant, EOPS, and Board of Governor's Fee Waivers.

Students in study abroad programs have extra expenses such as transportation costs. This is taken into consideration when awarding financial aid.

Students receiving financial aid for study abroad can generally receive their award before leaving on their trip, if their financial aid file is complete.

No aid can be disbursed before classes begin; therefore, students will be responsible for all deposits.

To help aid in the cost of studying abroad, the Higher Education Act was re-authorized in 1992 so that federal financial aid could be applied towards study abroad programs. Student loans, as well as scholarships provided by your college or third-party sources are also largely accepted among study abroad providers.
