Financing Study Abroad


Financial Aid

Enrollment in a program of study abroad approved for credit by the College may be considered enrollment at Curry College for purposes of applying for federal and state student financial aid.  Students seeking study abroad opportunities are encouraged to speak with a financial aid counselor to discuss their individual circumstances.

Study Abroad Partnerships

Curry College has consortium agreements with St. Francis University for its program in Ambialet, France and with Richmond, the American International University in London, England.  Students in these programs are considered enrolled students at Curry and are charged all tuition and fees through Curry College.  Students are eligible for all your financial aid, including Curry need based and merit based grant and scholarships.  Consortium Agreement and Statement of Responsbility are not required.

Study Abroad through Third-Party Providers

Students studying away through third-party providers pay all tuition and fees directly to the program provider.  Students must send an invoice to Student Financial Services for funds to be sent to their program.

  • If you are participating in a study abroad program through a third-party provider during the fall and/or spring semesters you are not eligible to use any of your Curry need based or merit-based grants and scholarships.
  • You are eligible to use:
    • Direct Loans (Stafford & PLUS)
    • Federal Pell Grant
    • Massachusetts State Grant
    • Private/Alternative Loans
  • Consortium Agreement & Statement of Responsibility required, these forms will be provided and discussed when you meet with a Financial Aid representative

Summer Programs

Since financial aid is awarded for the fall and spring semesters, the only assistance available would be Parent PLUS Loans, private loans and Federal Pel Grants if you are enrolled at least half-time and Pell Grant eligible during the academic year.
