Financial Aid

You should begin your financial planning as soon as you begin researching study abroad locations and programs. Keep in mind the funds/grants/loans you anticipate receiving. Carefully read the program costs to determine what is included in the program fee. Don’t forget to consider your spending habits, the cost of international airfare and your additional travel and meal costs (if you plan to travel during your program). Here are some resources to get you started:

Important note about federal financial aid:
All students must be enrolled in and complete a minimum of 12 credits while studying abroad, especially if they are receiving federal financial aid. If you fail to complete at least 12 credits while you are studying abroad you may have to return the federal aid received to Boise State University, and you will be billed for these monies.
