costs and financial aid

Financing Your AICAD Exchange Experience

Students may apply all current financial aid to your semester abroad, with the exception of work-study, including any SFAI scholarships or fellowships you may be receiving. In some cases, students may qualify for and consider taking out additional aid in the form of private loans. If you are receiving a private scholarship from an outside source, you must check directly with that organization or individual to determine if it can be applied to your AICAD Exchange semester.

If you wish to receive financial aid for the year following your off-campus semester, you may have to apply while you are on exchange. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) every year, even if you received financial aid the previous year. See Financial Aid for more or email the office at financialaid@sfai.edu.
