Spring Term Abroad


October 25th:  Deadline for students who are interested in financial aid for the Spring Term Abroad to sign up with the Financial Aid Office and confirm the required applications are on file. Students may sign up in person or online.

November 22nd: Aid packages will be sent via email to all students accepted to the Spring Term programs.  This will allow families to discuss the spring term abroad over Thanksgiving break.

February 5th: Deadline for any Spring Term Abroad loans to be processed.

Program Information:

  • The financial aid you currently have for Fall and Winter terms is completely separate from financial aid for STA programs.
  • All STA aid is need-based - honor scholarships and academic excellence does not give one student an advantage over others.
  • Students can expect to receive loans as part of their financial aid for Spring Term Abroad programs.
  • Sign up for one program only - should that program not materialize another program may be chosen and your financial aid package will be recalculated.
  • Program costs vary - aid offered for one program is not transferable to another program.
  • Students are not allowed to request aid for more than one program unless their first choice program does not materialize.
  • Spring Term Abroad (STA) programs are desirable yet optional.  They are not a graduation requirement.
  • We will not process any late financial aid awards for any programs.

Financial Aid Application Required:

  • The CSS PROFILE is used to determine your eligibility for grant assistance.  If you have not completed the CSS PROFILE for this current academic year, please do so immediately. Your file may contain enough documentation from a previous year to determine if the CSS PROFILE is worth filing.  Check with the Financial Aid Office.
  • The FAFSA is used to determine eligibility for federal loans
  • The International Student financial aid application is required for any international student who has not previously submitted this application.
