Financial aid to attend foreign schools

Is financial aid available for U.S. citizens or residents to attend foreign colleges or universities?

There are approximately 500 foreign post secondary institutions that are eligible to participate in the Federal Student Aid Program.  If you attend one of these institutions, you would be eligible to apply for a student loan through this program.  To search for an eligible institution, visit our Federal School Code Search page.  Once on this site, select the latest year and “Search.”  On the next page you may either select “foreign schools” in the state field and get a full listing of overseas schools, or search for a specific school using the institution's name.

 Additional information about studying abroad, including possible sources of financial aid, is also available.
