The Paris program courses are regular summer session courses and thus any financial aid for which you would be eligible for summer classes on-campus will be available to you for these courses. The Office of Financial Aid will assist qualified USF degree seeking students toward receiving any summer financial aid for which they are eligible. Please note that there are no funds from the Office of Financial Aid specifically designated for foreign study programs. Undergraduate students must be enrolled for at least 6 hours during the summer in order to receive financial aid; graduate students must enroll for at least 5 credits. (If you are doing Paris + Venice you will have a sufficient number of credits. If you are enrolled in Paris only, you might seek a 1-2 credit directed study with a professor during summer sessions A, B or C to reach the minimum number of credits needed.)
Note that financial aid payments are not coordinated with the Paris program fee payments which are due during the spring semester prior to the program but the Education Abroad office may be able to work with you in having your financial aid credited toward the program fee when it arrives. Any summer financial aid which may be available to a student will most likely be received by the student after the start date of the program.
If you plan to seek financial aid, it is advisable to set up a meeting with your financial aid counselor as soon as possible and it is also suggested that you contact Julie Ficarra at the Education Abroad office before meeting with your financial aid counselor as she may have information that can help to guide you through the process (email@example.com)
