Using Financial Aid
Aid-eligible students may use financial aid to cover program costs. Financial aid for study abroad is usually in the form of loans, some of which require a co-signer. OSFS sends Electronic Financial Aid Notifications (E-FAN) in late May.
Tuition and the program fee can be deferred until aid is released. However, as financial aid is not likely to release until after a program begins, expenses such as airfare, passport, books, and arrival expenses must be paid out-of-pocket.
Deferring the Program Balance to Financial Aid
The program fee balance (excludes the $500 non-refundable deposit) may be deferred to financial aid. This does not remove the charge from What I Owe. If there is a difference between what financial aid covers and what is owed, the student should pay the difference by May 1.
Students that withdraw on or after March 1 will be held financially responsible for a pre-determined percentage of the program fee (the 2015 policy will be added soon).
Students may withdraw online (not available for all programs) or withdraw by e-mailing the program coordinator. In addition, students are responsible for dropping their study abroad course(s) in accordance with UT registration procedures.
