Financial Aid & Scholarships

Financial Aid Information

Policy on Institutional Scholarships
Institutional scholarships are not applied to study abroad costs. We strongly encourage students to apply for external scholarships to fund study abroad. 
 
Spring 2020
For Students Studying Abroad with External Providers during the Spring 2020 (Arcadia, CAPA, CIEE, IES Abroad, ISEP)

Morehouse College students will be required to pay our preferred providers directly for all spring 2020 experiences. We have featured programs from our preferred providers listed on this site which we have vetted for quality, safety, and cost. Students who intend to enroll at Morehouse College and apply federal and other financial aid (excluding institutional scholarships) are required to select one of the programs featured for Morehouse College students. In this case, all payments (including financial aid) will be applied to the student’s account at the College and a refund will be sent to the student (or parent if PLUS loan funds are disbursed) that will be applied toward the study abroad experience.

Students who choose study abroad experiences that are not featured on this site, including those offered by our partners and other providers with whom the College does not partner, will not enroll at the College and will manage all costs.

The College has a mandatory direct deposit policy for student refunds.  Students must submit a direct deposit enrollment form prior to the semester payment due date. It is the student’s responsibility to use their student account refund to pay the study abroad provider directly.  Any balance owed to the provider will be the responsibility of the student.
