Education Abroad
Application Process

Financial Aid

  • All students who receive aid of any kind are encouraged to meet with Student Financial Services to discuss their study abroad plans. Estimated budgets for SU Sponsored Programs can be found here. If you are going on a Non-SU program and the program provider does not include a budget listed online please use the following template.

     It is recommended students designate a Power of Attorney while they are abroad.  Students must complete the following form and submit it to the Student Financial Services Office prior to departure.  Additionally, students can designate a Third-Party Access to their SU Educational Record.

    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.
    • Non-SU 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.
