What happens to my financial aid if I study abroad?

We work with undergraduate financial aid recipients to enable them to participate in study abroad options. Eligible programs must be during the fall and/or spring semester and approved for academic credit.

If you’re interested in studying abroad during an academic semester, you should work with MISTI to find a program that is an appropriate fit. Once a program has been approved, you will receive a form to be signed by us at SFS, stating that you have been counseled on how studying abroad can affect your financial aid and billing.
