KimberlySenior Year StudentLoyola Marymount UniversityYes. Your financial aid, whether that is grants, scholarships, loans, etc. do apply if you chose to study abroad. Make sure that you consult a financial aid advisor at your university before making any decisions to study abroad though.
JanethJunior Year StudentLoyola Marymount UniversityThis depends on what kind of program you will be attending, whether it is part of your school or an affiliate program. If the program is through your school then all of your aid should apply. If it is an affiliate program then some aid may apply but not all. To be sure, check with your study abroad office and the financial aid office. In my case, I went with a program from my school and all my aid transferred.
