For Plan A U.S. students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your host campus. Students apply for federally funded financial aid by using the FAFSA code of their host campus. Host campuses award aid to incoming Plan A students on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funds are available. Ask your home campus NSE coordinator if your campus awards aid to their own outgoing students. If so, do not apply for aid from your host campus.
For eligible Plan A applicants U.S. federal financial aid may be available in the following programs:
For Plan B students, aid is awarded by and disbursed from your home campus.
Regardless of Plan A or Plan B, students exchanging to or from Canada, apply for financial aid at their home campus.
