Study Abroad

Students who are recipients of need-based or merit-based aid and who plan to use this assistance for study abroad should provide official cost information for the chosen program of study to the Office of University Financial Aid. A Study Abroad Cost Sheet must be accompanied by some official documentation of the charges listed. Photocopies of the relevant pages from the foreign institution's bulletin are acceptable. Download the cost sheet from the forms library.

Students who are applying for need-based funds must submit the regular applications for financial aid along with the cost information. Log in to My Financial Aid or contact the Office of University Financial Aid if you have any questions about required forms.

University grants and scholarships are credited to your CWRU tuition account at the beginning of our regular semesters: late-August and mid-January. You must notify the Office of University Financial Aid if this schedule will not meet the requirements of your program.

Outside assistance is credited to the student's account upon receipt of the funds from the external source. Any excess funds are mailed to the student at his or her permanent home address or directly deposited. Student loan proceeds are generally disbursed at the same time, provided that the promissory note(s) have been signed and returned. Student employment is not available for study abroad.
