How does financial aid work with CIS Abroad?

Many schools allow financial aid funds to apply when students are receiving credit for study or intern abroad. This varies by school, so you should start by talking to your financial aid office. Once you know if you qualify to receive aid, we have some paperwork which you fill out with your financial aid officer. It works like an “IOU” and we defer the payment deadline for your financial aid funds until about 3 weeks after you’re scheduled to receive the aid. We’ll make those forms available on your participant portal, and you can also find them on our website’s Financial Aid How-To page. Look it over with your financial aid advisor and let us know if there are any questions.
