Students planning to study abroad may apply for federal and state sources of financial aid limited to the Federal Stafford Loan, Federal Pell Grant, and the Connecticut Scholastic Achievement Grant. Institutional sources of financial aid administered by USJ will be awarded only to students who are required to study abroad because of their major (i.e., Spanish, French, or other majors).
Students need to cover initial expenses, such as plane tickets, until their financial aid is disbursed after the start of the program.
Financial aid proceeds will first be credited to your USJ account. The University will then forward payment to the study-abroad program to cover any outstanding balance owed, providing the student gives USJ permission to do so. Otherwise, proceeds will be mailed directly to the student. Students are responsible for any charges not covered by financial aid.
