Study Abroad - Other SUNY Program

1 REVIEW YOUR COSTS

  • Review your budget sheet for the program, as determined by the other SUNY 4 year institution.  
  • Note that in most cases the costs are divided into two parts: 1) An invoice from your home school (SUNY New Paltz) for tuition/health insurance AND 2) an invoice from the other SUNY school for the abroad program fee. 
  • Your financial aid as it appears on your my.newpaltz account will apply towards the tuition/health insurance portion billed by New Paltz. Any leftover funds may be used to help pay the invoice for the other SUNY institution, if you choose.

Make sure you review your student account and financial aid package on my.newpaltz so you are clear on how much aid is applying to your semester abroad!

2 ISSUE OF REFUNDS

  • Any excess aid that's leftover after your NP tuition bill is paid can be refunded to you or your parent, or SUNY New Paltz can send funds to the other SUNY institution to cover all or part of the program fee bill. 
  • If you want the SUNY New Paltz Office of Student Accounts to send aid funds to the other SUNY school, please submit this form to the Financial aid office: Authorization to Send Funds

3 FINANCIAL AID AMOUNTS

»FEDERAL LOANS

  • Most students are initially packaged with the yearly maximum federal student loans. See the chart below.
  • If you are NOT packaged with maximum loans for the year and you require additional funds– submit this budget revision sheet to our office. We will then review your program costs to determine if you are eligible for more loan aid.  We will make any necessary adjustments to your budget and will then notify you via email if you are eligible for more loan funds. Your parent may also be eligible to increase their Parent PLUS loan as well.

Many private loans have variable rates and usually require a co-signer. You can research private loans online and apply with the lender of your choice.
