Financing Study Abroad

Studying abroad can be expensive, but that does not make it impossible.

In most cases, the financial aid that you receive to attend Missouri Western can be used to pay for your study abroad experience.

If you are interested in studying abroad, the Global Center staff will create a budget of total costs associated with the program. This budget will be submitted to the Financial Aid Office to calculate the amount of aid available to you.
