Financial aid students who enroll in one of our leave exchange programs are able to continue to receive financial aid.
The award has to be recalculated based on the cost of the student's program. An award package for an exchange student includes only a student loan and grant/scholarship assistance. Work-study is not available. In some cases, the cost of the exchange program is less than the cost to be enrolled on campus. This may cause a reduction in the grant amount.
Students participating in an exchange program complete the regular financial aid application forms by the application deadline. There are no additional forms to complete. The global education office will notify us of the students who are participating in our programs. We will calculate their awards based on that notification.
Exchange decisions for the fall are mailed at the end of June if the student has complied with the May 1 deadline. Decisions for spring are mailed as soon as possible.
