Financial Aid and Scholarships (cont'd)
Financial Aid – Summer Session
Summer financial aid is based on the FAFSA information used to determine eligibility for the previous fall and spring semesters. Those students who are Pell eligible should also complete the upcoming FAFSA to ensure they receive their maximum Pell grant eligibility. To determine aid eligibility for summer, students must provide a copy of their summer schedule to the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships. For specific information please visit our web site at:http://www.msubillings.edu/finaid/SummerFinAid.htm.
Financial Aid - Study Abroad
The Financial Aid Director will review requests for funding “Study Abroad” coursework after receiving the following information and documentation:
Document acceptance into the study abroad program.;
A copy of the course approval form;
A list of all necessary direct education expenses such as: tuition & fees, books, class supplies, room and board
A copy of the airline ticket or a letter from a travel agency listing the cost if the student is to incur airfare or travel expenses
The above information must be submitted to the Financial Aid Office at least six weeks prior to departure. Any adjustments to a student’s award will be based upon eligibility and available funds. Most grant and loan programs have yearly limits which cannot be exceeded. These limits could affect a student’s funding level, even if allowable expenses are documented.
Additional information is available by contacting the Financial Aid Office in McMullen Hall first floor east, or calling (406) 657-2188 to make an appointment.
