Students may receive financial aid for WOU approved study abroad programs as long as they are considered an eligible student. Refer to The Student Guide for further information on eligibility. Financial Aid includes grants, loans, work study, and scholarships.
Students planning to use their financial aid to pay for their study abroad expenses must schedule an appointment with a financial aid counselor. During this appointment, the student and counselor will go over the Study Abroad Policies and Procedures for Financial Aid. The student will be able to learn what types of financial aid they might qualify for to use towards their study abroad program. The student is required to complete a change in aid request form, to request that their additional study abroad expenses added to their budgets.
The study abroad programs which are eligible for federal financial aid through WOU are subject to change.
