Hello @Abdul, our students use financial aid to study abroad, yes! Whether it covers the full cost is a discussion we recommend you have with the financial aid office.

@Jasmine Yes, you can still study abroad even if you're an alumni (already graduated). You'll still enroll in the program, probably as a continuing education student. You can also delay your graduation so you'll finish in Summer, not Spring.
