    This varies by institutions. In many cases, your financial aid simply transfers over, though you will need to fill out some clearance forms. In any case, it is extremely important that you speak with a financial aid counselor so they can guide you in the appropriate direction and tell you specifically what you need to do. This is crucial, as you don’t want to end up missing out on funds!

    Most programs use financial aid forms that follow FAFSA-- which students fill out every year for financial aid at their home university. However, there are several scholarships available to students for study abroad as well.
