Enrollment in a study abroad program, approved for credit by TU, will have enrollment at TU for purposes of applying for federal financial aid. TU will be considered the home school and will be responsible for processing federal financial aid for that one semester only.
Study Abroad loans are made in two equal disbursements. The first disbursement will credit the student’s account in the Business Office no earlier than 10 days prior to the program start date, and the second disbursement will credit the student’s account in the Business Office at the midpoint of the program. Please note, if you will be applying for Tuition Benefit, only one term of a Study Abroad program is covered by Tuition Benefit.
Please contact the Office of Student Financial Services to inquire about the paperwork required to apply for federal financial aid for Study Abroad and to learn how it will affect your federal financial aid the next semester when you return to TU. Your future financial aid cannot be released until the grades from your study abroad program are received and posted to your student transcript by TU.
