Summer Study Abroad

Students attending a study abroad trip for summer that are expecting a financial aid refund will receive the funds 7-10 days prior to their first day of class. We encourage students to enroll in direct deposit, which can be done at Since students often leave for their trips several days before their class begins we offer short-term loans to students that need funds before they receive their refund. Loans up to $450 for undergraduate students can be processed online through StuInfo. Students must be registered to be eligible and loans are due 60 days after receiving the loan. Students must have a means of repayment to receive the loan.

Contacting the Office of Financial Aid

If you have called our office this week you probably noticed our phone lines were very busy. We will have additional staff answering phones to assist. Spring and Summer are our peak financial aid processing seasons. Thank you very much for your patience!


The Office of Financial Aid's reception and advising area will be closed April 21st through August 1st and relocated to the Brody Neighborhood Engagement Center due to renovations.  The front reception area will be closed during construction and many advisors will be relocated during this time.

Our phones, e-mail, and social media will continue to be available during our regular business hours of 8:00am to 4:55pm Monday through Thursday and 9:00am to 4:55pm on Fridays.

We are looking forward to a new advising area that will provide more privacy for students and families coming in to discuss their educational financing options. Thank you for your patience as we improve this space.
