Financial Aid for Study AbroadGenerally, St. Kate's allows the financial aid you normally receive — grants, loans and scholarships — to be applied toward study abroad program costs. Some exceptions apply, including student employment and tuition remission.
Students not currently receiving financial aid may be eligible for student loans. January-term financial aid is part of winter semester package. For summer programs, you must enroll in at least six credits to be eligible for financial aid.
For financial aid to apply to your study abroad costs, you must be approved to study abroad by the Office of Global Studies and you must be enrolled full-time. Undergraduates must enroll in at least 12 credits abroad to be eligible to use financial aid. Some grants, such as the Minnesota State Grant, require you to take at least 15 credits per semester to avoid a decreased grant amount. Graduate students, generally, must enroll for a minimum of six credits to be considered full-time.
Students should consult with the Office of Global Studies and the Financial Aid office for details on their particular situation.
