If you are eligible for financial aid when you are on campus, subject to the same conditions, you will maintain your aid eligibility when you study abroad for a semester or year. This includes, but is not limited to, maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). Your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) will remain the same for the academic year.
