Financial Aid Study Abroad

Students participating in Howard University sponsored or approved programs may use their financial assistance to pay for HU Tuition charges, study abroad program fees and living expenses while on exchange. Students who qualified for work-study cannot utilize that award during the semester abroad.

Students who wish to include the cost of airfare or other extraordinary expenses in the cost of attendance budget for loan application purposes may do so by scheduling an appointment with a financial aid officer.

Students on HU sponsored or approved study abroad program during the summer may use any unused Federal Direct Stafford loan eligibility, Federal Direct PLUS or private alternative loans.

Students who anticipate refunds from financial assistance and/or loans should contact the Bursar for refund options.  If paper checks are expected from either an alternative loan source or for refund purposes the student will need to designate someone with Power of Attorney authority.
