Your ability to use financial aid to help cover the costs of your time abroad depends on the program you choose. Be sure to discuss your plans with the Director of Financial Aid. In general, participants in exchange programs can use both their institutional and government aid toward their study abroad experience. Students enrolled in consortium programs may be able to use government aid.
Student loans may be available for students that participate in College-approved educational programs. Students who receive financial aid and usually receive stipends after their MEC tuition is paid for the semester could save this stipend and apply this stipend towards the overall cost of the study abroad program.
