Financial Options

Financial limitations are one of the most common reasons students choose not to study abroad. However, with the wide variety of location options and scholarships available, this does not need to be a barrier. Many students have been able to study abroad for the same cost or less than a semester at NCU.

Financial Aid:

Federal aid can be applied to your study abroad semester. Financial aid may be available, talk with your Financial Aid counselor.
