Financial Aid for Summer Study Abroad Courses
Students who attend CCA-sponsored study-abroad courses may be eligible for Federal Pell Grants and Federal Direct Loans. CCA scholarships are not available for study abroad courses. The tuition for these courses has already been discounted. It includes housing costs and more. It is as if everyone got a scholarship up front. Please see individual program descriptions to see what is included in addition to earning 3 credits.
Students enrolling in CCA-sponsored study abroad courses must complete the FAFSA by Monday, February 18, 2013, and submit a complete summer application by Monday, February 25, 2013, to ensure priority processing. Students submitting applications after February 25 cannot be guaranteed a timely award notification. Please submit your materials as soon as possible; the quicker you do so, the sooner you will receive an award notification.
No applications for summer financial aid will be accepted after Tuesday, April 30, 2013.
Once students have submitted a summer financial aid application and a FAFSA, they can go to the Student Records Office to register for the course (beginning March 1).
Summer Study Abroad Registration
Student Accounts has a list of students who have applied for financial aid and can review the estimated financial aid award amounts prior to registration. Charges in excess of estimated or actual financial aid award amounts must be paid at the time of registration.
Please be advised that there is a $50 nonrefundable registration fee.
Estimated financial aid award amounts are subject to change based on your 2013-14 FAFSA information. Final award notifications will be available after all required documentation has been submitted and reviewed by the Financial Aid Office and you have enrolled in summer courses.
Enrollment changes may result in adjustments to your summer financial aid.
Changes to your summer schedule after your first course has started may be considered a withdrawal and could impact your eligibility. Students are responsible for all charges that result from a withdrawal. For more information, please visit Policies or contact the Financial Aid Office prior to making course changes.
Students who will be completing their degree requirements in the summer may not be eligible for the full loan amount.
