American University students with financial aid will be able to utilize their award package for their AU Abroad program. All students who have completed and submitted their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the AU Financial Aid office by the appropriate deadlines will be considered for financial assistance each year. Students may apply their scholarships and grants to pay for term(s) abroad provided that they are enrolled full-time (the equivalent of at least 12 AU credits per semester). Students CANNOT use federal work-study awards to pay for their study abroad experience.
