Federal and most institutional financial aid can be used for ISEP programs, and your financial aid award may be adjusted to cover travel costs and additional fees. Your university may also have specific internal scholarships reserved for study abroad. Set up a time to meet with the international programs staff and the financial aid office as soon as you can.

Financial Aid & ISEP Exchange

All federal, state and institutional aid transfers. As long you are earning academic credit that is fulfilling some requirement of your degree program (including elective credits) you can use federal aid for ISEP Exchange programs. Title IV of the Higher Education Act guarantees that students can use federal aid for any approved study abroad programs. Work-Study Grants may not be applied.

Financial Aid & ISEP Direct

As long as you will be earning academic credit that is fulfilling some requirement of their degree program (including elective credits) you can use federal aid for ISEP Direct programs. Title IV of the Higher Education Act guarantees that students can use federal aid for any approved study abroad programs. The use of state and institutional aid will vary from member to member.

We recommend making an appointment with your international programs and financial aid office to get more information regarding financial aid transfers.
