Many UI students study abroad and receive financial aid.  The semester before you leave, there are specific steps you will need to take to make sure your financial aid is in place.  Our study abroad web page offers details on the procedures.

If you have not completed all of your degree requirements and are studying abroad at an eligible institution, you may qualify for financial aid if you follow our study abroad procedures.

If you have completed all of your degree requirements for a single declared major, you will not qualify for financial aid.  If you are a double major/dual degree seeking student, only courses required for your major can be covered by federal, state, and institutional aid. You must take at least 6 hours required for the second major or degree to qualify for loans.
