ASU Financial Aid
It is possible to apply Federal Financial Aid money toward ASU-approved study abroad programs.
- Apply for FAFSA, even if you don’t think you qualify. If you are currently receiving financial aid and are enrolled in an ASU study abroad program, you are eligible to use that aid toward your program tuition and/ or program fees.
- You must be enrolled as a full-time student to receive financial aid. You should also be familiar with further eligibility requirements.
- There is a maximum amount of aid you can receive per academic year, so you want to make sure you have aid available to use when you study abroad, especially for summer.
- Meet with a Financial Aid Counselor in ASU Financial Aid and Scholarships Services before starting your study abroad application, or as early in the process as possible.
Once you are confirmed in a program, you can submit a cost sheet to Financial Aid and Scholarship Services (FASS) to have your aid reassessed. For students participating in Faculty-Directed Summer programs and Global Intensive Experience programs, this process has been automated. As a result, you do not need to submit a hard copy cost sheet to FASS, but your costs will still be reassessed. There is no guarantee that your aid will be increased, so plan cautiously.To find information about the costs of ASU’s study abroad programs, use the Program Search function. Then select the “Cost Sheet” link for the desired term to find a breakdown of program expenses.
Additional resources are available through the ASU Financial Aid and Scholarships Services and the U.S. Department of Education.
