No matter what your financial background, you can access federal financial aid, and take it with you on an OSU-approved experience abroad (ie. any program found on our website, including IE3 Global Internships).

Most likely more loans, including Parent PLUS, may be made available. Please see the Financial Aid website for more information.

Also think about your reasons for wanting to study abroad. How enthusiastic are you to make that happen?
