Undergraduate Financial Aid for DU Partner Programs

If you attend a DU partner program, any applicable institutional, federal, and state scholarship and financial aid funds (except work study) will be applied to your study abroad term. Outside scholarships will be applied insofar as conditions stipulated by the donor permit. Institutional aid will only pay out for the terms in which a student pays tuition to DU. See the DU policy on Tuition and Fees for more details.

If you receive a housing grant as part of a scholarship or financial aid award, you may use it for a DU Partner Program even if you lived off campus previously and did not receive that portion of the award. There are a few DU Partner Programs that require students to pay for their housing directly rather than to DU; in those cases, the housing portion of a scholarship would be credited to the student's tuition bill.

You are encouraged to speak directly with the Financial Aid Office for details on your specific aid package. The Financial Aid Office maintains a webpage for more information.

Summer financial aid is determined separately from the academic year, so you will need to complete the summer application form available on webCentral (usually available in April).

Unfortunately, most financial aid is not applicable to interterm study programs.

Undergraduate Financial Aid for Unaffiliated Programs

Institutional funds are not available for unaffiliated programs, but federal and state aid usually apply (except work study). Most financial aid is not applicable to interterm study programs.

Graduate Financial Aid

Graduate students must be registered for at least half-time enrollment to be eligible for financial aid awards. You will be registered at DU based on the credits pre-approved on your Credit Approval Form. In turn, financial aid awards will be based on the registration credit. You will not receive financial aid for a non-credit program or language study abroad.
