Current Financial Aid Documentation

In order to determine your eligibility for some of our need-based aid and scholarships, we need to see an official document that details your current financial aid profile. If your aid package is not yet available for your study abroad semester, submit the most recent aid profile information available to you.

Your current aid information must be:

  • Clearly labeled with your name.
  • One of the five acceptable options detailed below.
  • Complete and without any missing information (see examples provided for each option).
  • Submitted by the student to IES Abroad. Per federal guidelines on financial aid documents, your school cannot send us your financial aid information directly.

Acceptable documents include: Student Aid Report (SAR); Shopping Sheet; Explanation of Funding; Financial Aid Award Letter; Student Aid Profile Document.

See below for more details on each.
