Financial Aid can only process aid up to the cost of the trip. The amounts are based upon what is given to them by the Study Abroad Office. There are some circumstances where Financial Aid is allowed to increase your budget if your airfare is not covered in the trip. It is very important that you meet with Ms. Theresa to discuss your options.
