Preparing for Education Abroad
Students going abroad through a study abroad program hosted by a third-party provider (for example: International Studies Abroad (ISA), Semester at Sea, etc) or an international exchange program (where UAA has a direct partnership) can usually use financial aid to help pay for program costs. Students should refer to the UAA Office of Financial Aid for detailed information regarding how to receive financial aid.
Additionally, for programs hosted by a third-party provider, students should refer to the program’s website for more detailed information on how to use financial aid to pay for program costs.
