Will my finacial aid apply?
For approved undergraduate semester/year study abroad, your financial aid travels with you. Aid is needs-based, consistent with university and government policies and covers all costs relative to study abroad. The normal work-study component of your aid package will be converted to student loans.
The Expected Family Contribution (EFC) remains the same for the academic year and aid is adjusted according to the higher or lower costs of the program. Students participating in an off-campus program should sign up for direct deposit through the Bursar’s Office.
Students pay deposits directly to all programs that are not "Cornell-In" programs. Cornell Abroad instructs all study abroad programs and universities to invoice Cornell Abroad for program costs less the amount of the deposit. Cornell Abroad charges the student’s Cornell Bursar account for program tuition and CIPT mandatory program fee. Your Cornell Bursar bill in July and/or December will reflect these charges and must be paid by the date indicated to remain a registered Cornell student.
The following items are all included in the estimated costs for financial aid. Many of these, if not billed directly by the program, will be "out of pocket" costs:
- Housing (if not included in program / sponsor fees)
- Meals (if not included in the housing costs)
- Required immunizations
- International travel from the home state
- Local transportation
- Books and materials
- Personal expenses
