Financial Aid and Study Abroad
All students who receive aid of any kind are required to complete a Financial Aid packet which includes a checklist and other important forms. Once you complete your online Horizons application, a completed budget will be uploaded to your application by the Education Abroad Office. After you receive this budget and complete the remaining steps in the packet, you are required to meet with Student Financial Services to discuss your Study Abroad plans.
The amount of financial aid available depends on the program you choose:
Seattle University Sponsored Programs and Exchange Programs allow full financial aid portability of all SU institutional grants and/or scholarships, state and federal aid and usually outside scholarships because you actually remain enrolled at Seattle University.
Seattle University Approved Programs allow only state and federal aid portability, not SU institutional grants or scholarships. Because of our relationship with these programs additional scholarships are often available directly from the program sponsors.
Non-SU Programs - Allow only state and federal aid portability, not SU institutional grants or scholarships.
After you receive a completed budget from your Education Abroad Advisor, meet with Fran Henderson to determine how much of your aid package will apply to your particular category of program.
