Study Abroad Financial Aid


Most forms of federal and state financial aid will be available to you for study abroad or USA off-campus study. Consult with the Office of Student Financial Services for eligibility and use of these funds.

Institutional financial aid is available only for students who register with AU for their study abroad. This financial aid is available for the academic year, not during summer term.

Anderson University Financial Aid

To apply for Anderson University financial aid, complete the Application for AU Financial Aid for Study Abroad and Off-Campus Study form and submit it to the Center for International and Intercultural Studies.
