Financial Aid for Study Abroad Programs
Financial Aid Disbursements
— Federal Student Aid (@FAFSA) November 18, 2015
If you are eligible for financial aid, you may use those funds toward EOU study abroad programs.
However, if you are approved for aid to attend non-EOU programs, you may receive only Federal Direct Loans and Grants, the Oregon Opportunity Grant, and alternative or private loans. EOU scholarships are not available to students studying abroad under consortium agreements. Alternative/private loans must be lender approved.
If you are attending a non-EOU program, we will use the cost of attendance figures from your host school to determine your aid eligibility.
This may mean that you will have to pay any up-front study abroad travel, program fees and deposits on your own.
Financial aid funds will be disbursed directly to you. It is your responsibility to pay all charges to the host institution. We encourage you to sign up for direct deposit to receive funds directly deposited to your bank account.
Remember that if you drop out or fail to earn credits after your financial aid has paid, you may be required to return funds.
