Financial Aid, Scholarships and Grants

 Financial Aid | Scholarships | Payment Types by Programs

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Rights (FERPA) is a law that protects the confidentiality of student records in an academic environment. If you require financial assistance during your semester abroad you will need to take the initiative and maintain communication with the financial office. The Study Abroad Office does not have access to financially sensitive information. This includes requesting advances, applications, scholarships and grants etc.

It is your responsibility to meet with Amee Wilmes (ameade@nwmissouri.edu) in the Financial Aid by calling 660.562.1988 or 660.562.1363 and to follow up to accept loans, request advances, etc.

All students require a Study Abroad budget prior to meeting with the Financial Aid Office. A financial aid consult is a requirement and part of the application process.


Financial Aid

If the student is eligible for financial aid during his/her semester program or faculty led program, the Study Abroad Office will issue a budget of total costs for the entire program; the budget will be catered to meet the student's individual requirements. It will comprise of several items including transportation and airfare to traveling expenses and meals.

This budget will be submitted to the Financial Aid office to calculate the amount of aid available for the student. The student may or may not get financial aid that covers the budget suggested by the Study Abroad Office. This depends on calculations and eligibility of the student and the family income as reported to the IRS and though FAFSA.
