Unofficial budget: The attached budget below is based on estimates from a past term and is intended for planning purposes only. Students will receive an official budget from their study abroad advisor for their specific program and term following their acceptance to study abroad.
Financial aid: For students receiving financial aid, the Unofficial Budget can be taken to the Office of Student Financial Aid for a Walk-in Advising Appointment in order to see how their package may be applied towards study abroad costs. However, please keep in mind that this is an unofficial review; students will submit an Official Study Abroad Budget form after their acceptance from their Study Abroad Advisor, which will then be used to formalize the processing of their aid. Please note that the unofficial review is done using your CURRENT financial aid package. Should your financial aid package change, the amount of aid you receive may change as well.
