How to Finance Your Study Abroad

Types of aid for study abroad

Financial Aid Services does not have any special funds reserved for study abroad, but the grants and loans you receive during the fall and spring semesters may be used to cover study abroad charges for Binghamton University or another SUNY program.

If you plan to attend a winter or summer abroad program, loans may be the only available aid and will be deducted from your fall or spring financial aid package.

If you are attending a SUNY program, New York State’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) will be applied. If you’re attending a non-SUNY program, TAP will not be available (see section below "If you're not attending a SUNY Study Abroad Program" for more information).

Once you decide on a program, you may want to meet with your financial aid counselor to discuss financial aid for the trip. Bring an estimate of the program's cost with you.

To see if you are eligible to apply for scholarships, contact the Office of International Programs at 777-2336 or stop by the Nelson Rockefeller Center, located in Hinman College.

Financial aid must dos before you study abroad

* The Study Abroad Request for Review Form lists all of the information and documents we will need in order to determine your eligibility for ANY aid toward study-abroad expenses. Once you complete this form and return it to our office with the required documentation, it will be reviewed by your Financial Aid Counselor. You will be notified if there are any changes to your previous financial aid offer.
