Typically, the financial aid that you currently receive can be applied to any Park University Study Abroad program, with the exception of work study. There are a few things to consider when planning on using financial aid for a study abroad experience.
- FAFSA application in file
- Full time status while abroad.
- Participation in a Park University approved study abroad program
- 12 credits for fall and spring semesters
- 6 credits for summer programs
The first step will be to identify a program of interest; the Study Abroad Office will produce an estimate budget for the program you have selected. A financial aid counselor will review and estimate the financial aid package based on this estimate budget.
When you are accepted into a study abroad program, the Study Abroad Office will produce a final cost of attendance budget and submit it to a financial aid counselor. Your financial aid package (including grants, scholarships, and loans) will be adjusted based on the cost of attendance and will be applied automatically to your tuition and program fees.
Once all applicable aid and scholarships are disbursed, the Accounting Office will extend a refund if and when the financial aid exceeds the balance on the student’s account.
The timing of this will vary based on program selected and departure dates.
Students who receive TR must contact the Study Abroad Office to obtain the Tuition Remission policy for study abroad programs.
Students who receive scholarships or grants from outside organizations should contact those organizations to confirm that the awards may be applied to study abroad.
