Aid for Study Abroad at Niagara
Niagara University recognizes Study Abroad as an academic experience first and
foremost and we realize that Study Abroad not only replaces academic work a
student might otherwise complete on-campus, but the international experience
also enhances a student’s curriculum on-campus.
As such, our policy is to provide support for financial services
necessary for Study Abroad just as we would on-campus.
Do not assume that Study Abroad is too expensive

for financial aid by completing the appropriate financial aid
application forms in a timely fashion.
