The costs for study abroad programs can vary depending upon the program selected. The institution of foreign study must be a Title 4 eligible school in order to receive financial aid through Dominican University of California. Students can request information about the Title 4 from the institution itself.
Federal and state financial aid programs are available to help fund study abroad programs that are approved for credit by Dominican. Students may also use private loans to fund their experience.
Unless students are interested in a non-federal loan, students must file a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) application and the Dominican University of California Financial Aid application in order to apply. Students should contact Dominican's Financial Aid Office for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org; 415-257-1350.
Please note that Dominican University of California scholarships cannot be applied to non-Dominican study abroad programs.
Students who wish to apply for private, federal, and state financial aid to help them with their study abroad program must complete the following forms and submit them to the Financial Aid office.
* Leave for Study Abroad Application
* Authorization to Take Courses Off Campus
* Financial Aid Consortium Agreement
All three forms are necessary in order to apply for financial aid to study abroad. Once the student has filled out the Authorization to Take Courses Off Campus form, they need to make a copy of the form and turn it into the Financial Aid office, along with the Financial Aid Consortium Agreement form.
Dominican University Business Services will then forward the finances to the permanent address of the student, unless specified differently. To specify a different address, please fill out the Financial Aid Disbursement Authorization Form.
This form will let the Business Services office know where you would like the finances to be sent. This form is not necessary unless the student would like the finances to be sent somewhere other than their permanent address.
