Don't let financial concerns stand in the way of your plans to study abroad. Syracuse University has generous financial aid policies. Take advantage of all the options available to you.
SU Abroad offers study abroad grants on the basis of need. The grants range from $500 to $4,000, and are based in part on the number of credits you are enrolled in. Grants are awarded by the Financial Aid Office in conjunction with SU Abroad, and are based upon the current FAFSA and CSS PROFILE; no application is needed for SU students. Visiting students must provide SU with access to their FAFSA for financial need review. To do so, log into your FAFSA account online and add Syracuse University (code 002882 on the FAFSA). This is based on your 2012-13 academic year information. Students who do not demonstrate need will not be eligible for a SAG.
Syracuse University graduate students seeking financial aid assistance should consult with their home college or institution.
Students are eligible to borrow through the Federal Stafford Student Loan Program. You may also borrow with a Plus loan or an Alternative Loan. The amount undergraduate students may borrow is based on the number of credits they have completed before the beginning of the summer program. Contact the Financial Aid office at your home institution to find out how much you may borrow.
Students matriculated at Syracuse University must apply for their loans through the Financial Aid Office on main campus. All students applying for assistance for the summer should follow the application procedures for applying for financial aid. This includes completing a FAFSA and a Syracuse University financial aid application. Additional information and applications for summer financial aid will be available at the Financial Aid Office.
Students matriculated at colleges and universities other than Syracuse University may be eligible to receive financial assistance through their home colleges. Before applying to a summer study abroad program, students should contact their home college financial aid officer regarding their institution's policies. In some cases, the home college will agree to process financial aid for its students.
If the home college refuses to process financial aid for the summer term, Syracuse University may be able to process the student's aid if the student's home school agrees to sign a consortium agreement with Syracuse University. For detailed steps on this process, please contact SU Abroad at 1-800-235-3472.
Syracuse University Abroad maintains an extensive list of outside scholarships for its students.
