Study Abroad Program
Notre Dame students are encouraged to consider the opportunities for international study that are offered through the Office of International Studies. Students may choose from over 40 locations in more than 20 countries around the world. The cost for University-sponsored programs includes Notre Dame tuition and on-campus room and board, as well as other expenses related to studying abroad. More information is available from the Office of International Studies website at http://international.nd.edu/international-studies.
A student's enrollment in a program of study abroad approved for credit by the University may be considered enrollment at the home institution for the purpose of applying for assistance under the title IV, HEA programs. Students receiving financial assistance while studying abroad will have their financial aid adjusted in accordance with the international program costs and University policy. The links below provide information for questions regarding financial aid policies for students who are studying abroad.
Students interested in financial assistance for summer study abroad opportunities through the Office of International Studies will be required to complete the same financial aid procedures as those attending Summer Session on main campus.
International Study Leave of Absence
Notre Dame students who have been granted (by their Dean) a leave of absence to attend an international program of study at another institution are encouraged to consult with an academic advisor to ensure that the course work will be transferrable to Notre Dame.

The completed Consortium Agreement must be submitted to the University of Notre Dame Office of Financial Aid before any financial aid can be finalized or loan applications certified.
