QUESTION:

CAN I RECEIVE AID TO STUDY ABROAD?

ANSWER:

Students wishing to study abroad may be eligible to receive Title IV funds.  Wayland Baptist University (known as the home school) can enter an agreement or consortium with another school (known as the host school) to provide eligible students with Title IV funds to attend the other school for a specific period of time.  The credits earned must be used toward graduation requirements.  Cost of attendance adjustments will be completed once the consortium agreement has been approved*.  The law states that a student participating in a study abroad program must meet the following requirements:  1) an eligible student enrolled in an eligible program at the home school; and 2) the eligible school approves the program of study abroad for academic credit.

              *Submitting a consortium agreement request does not constitute automatic approval.
