Funding tip

Always remember to check with your financial aid office about possible funding that your school may offer. Also check into seeing if a financial aid advisor at your school is willing to increase your cost of attendance. This value is the maximum amount of financial aid you are allowed to receive in grants, loans, scholarships, etc. Because you will most likely be spending more on school-approved educational programmes during your study abroad semester than a regular student would, your cost of attendance is greater and you are allowed more financial aid to be counted as financial aid (as opposed to taxable income).
