Tips

  • If you have a study abroad deferment form or scholarship application that needs to be completed by our office, you may drop off the paperwork in SCHL 305. Our study abroad administrator will complete the form(s) and email you a scanned copy once it is complete.
  • If you receive a Big Moves Scholarship awarded by the Study Abroad Office, it will appear in your financial aid eligibility within 2-3 weeks of our office being notified of your eligibility. Your financial aid, including the Big Moves Scholarship, cannot exceed your cost of attendance for the program.
  • If you are participating in a study abroad program over the summer, refer to the summer requirements to apply for aid eligibility.
  • The Study Abroad Office can help you with questions about specific study abroad programs or eligibility, costs, application deadlines, or deposits.
