Loan Assistance

Students may be able to receive additional loans (available under the Parent PLUS, DIRECT or  Alternative Student Loan program through private lenders—banks, savings and loan associations, or credit unions) to help finance their study abroad. For more detailed information click here.

Work Study

Although work study is not particularly applicable to overseas travel (most eligible students prefer to save their allocation for the semester they will not be abroad), some modest possibilities exist. Contact the International Programs office about possibilities for earning overseas.
