Good news! Your financial aid will apply to most study abroad programs. Aid eligibility will generally apply as follows:
SPU Faculty-led and Partner Programs
Program fees for these programs are paid to SPU. Financial aid may include federal and state aid (except work study), as well as some SPU institutional aid (see specific programs for details). For SPU Faculty-led programs and Global Seminars, a $300 study abroad administrative fee is already included in the program cost. For Partner Programs, a $350 fee will be charged to your student account.
Non-SPU Programs (Third-Party Providers, Direct Enrollment)
Students pay the provider or foreign institution for all tuition and program fees. Students may use their federal and state financial aid (except work study), but do not receive any SPU financial aid or merit scholarships during their period abroad. A $350 study abroad administrative fee will be charged to your SPU account once you are registered for a study abroad program.
Your financial aid is normally applied to your study abroad program, but it is very important for you to check with Student Financial Services before applying to any program to determine eligibility or to increase the amount of loans you already receive.
For questions concerning financial aid eligibility, please contact Student Financial Services or stop by Demaray Hall 10. Non-SPU students should contact the financial aid office at their home school to determine financial aid eligibility.
