Cross-Cultural Experience

Financial Aid

Carroll’s cross-cultural experiences don’t have to break the bank. Carroll grants approximately $300,000 in funds each year to support cross cultural immersion experiences. In recent years, students have received between 20 to 40 percent of the cost of their experiences through scholarships and grants. Additionally, Carroll alumni have contributed toward a fund that pays up to 10 percent of the cost of a CCE for students who might not otherwise qualify for a financial award.

Complete the FAFSA

Students must complete the required FAFSA to be considered for financial aid. The Office of Financial Aid will inform students of their total financial aid package. Depending on your type of CCE, you may be able to use your federal and state aid, institutional scholarships and outside scholarships. Upon acceptance to your program, you will receive specific information related to costs and financial aid.

Affiliated Programs

Students selected to participate in an affiliated program pay the affiliated program’s tuition and a study abroad fee of $350. They may receive a portion of their Carroll financial aid packages (excluding Carroll University scholarships) and will pay room and board expenses to the host university. Contact the study abroad adviser in the Office of General Education for more information on these programs.

Unaffiliated Programs

Students approved to participate in an unaffiliated program pay all program fees directly to the study abroad institution and a $350 study abroad fee to Carroll. In some cases, students can use federal and state aid towards unaffiliated programs. Because students are 100 percent responsible for the program costs, the CCE Student Award is not applicable. Contact the study abroad adviser in the Office of General Education for more information on these programs.
