Myth: If I use financial aid this summer for the Oxford Program I will not get fall or spring aid.

Fact:  No, if you use aid money in the summer, this does not take away from any other term's loans. You will still get the same amount in the fall and spring that you usually get. Yes, you will have more to pay back when you graduate, but if you are borrowing money anyway, it may as well be for this great experience on which you cannot really place a price tag.

Myth: Financial aid won’t pay for study abroad and I cannot make payments before my aid comes in.

Fact:  Using a combination of Stafford, Parent Plus, private education loans, and Pell Grant, financial aid can help you pay for it all. If you are eligible (US citizens only), these loans can sometimes cover the entire amount plus spending money. You can even use the aid to cover your flight costs and additional expenses. The financial aid office knows the full Oxford Program cost and they can tell you the amount you are allowed to borrow. Any funds awarded will be disbursed in the summer semester.
