Financial Information


moneyStudy abroad and National Student Exchange is a great asset to your undergraduate resume, but it often costs more than a regular term on campus.  Plan ahead and begin saving money for it as early as possible!  Make sure to budget for extra spending money, the costs of a visa, and your airline tickets as well.

Financial Aid

Federal, state, and most institutional financial aid may be used to help pay for a study abroad program at UW-Stevens Point, as long as you are a degree-seeking student, enrolled at least part-time (six credits) and meet all eligibility requirements.
 
**YOU MUST BE ENROLLED IN AT LEAST 6 CREDITS IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING FOR A SUMMER, FALL OR SPRING STUDY-ABROAD PROGRAM**
 
To have your financial aid award revised for study abroad:
1.Submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online, at www.fafsa.ed.gov and promptly complete any subsequent requirements as identified.
2. Submit a study abroad application to the Office of International Education.
3. Accept your financial aid award through accesSPoint.
4. Secure alternative funds as needed. For assistance with finding a private educational loan, you may consider viewing our online comparison tool, FastChoice 
5. Upon confirmation of your participation in a study abroad program be sure to submit the Study Abroad Revision Form to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships (Rm 103 SSC). Requesting a budget adjustment for your study abroad trip does not alter your expected family contribution (EFC), which ultimately determines eligibility for grant funding. In most cases, a study abroad revision may increase Federal Direct Loan eligibility if not already awarded the maximum.
