Financial Aid Policies

Earlham students may use their financial aid packages for studying abroad with one of the College's programs or an Earlham-approved program, detailed in these policies.

  1. Off-campus semester programs are considered part of your four-year experience. If you transferred to Earlham from another college/university, your off-campus program aid should be within the number of semesters of aid you have at Earlham as per the Financial Aid office.
  2. Earlham funds may be used on only one off-campus program. This includes both need-based and merit scholarships offered by Earlham College. Questions concerning Earlham tuition remission and off-campus programs should be directed to Earlham’s Human Resources personnel.
  3. If a student takes more than one Earlham College or Earlham-approved off-campus program, Federal aid, state aid and aid provided by non-Earlham sources may be used if you are otherwise eligible for that source/type of aid.
  4. Earlham College does not provide or process aid for programs that are not Earlham College programs or Earlham-approved programs.
  5. Earlham-funded, need-based grant aid is not increased for students on off-campus programs. To help with possible extra expenses involved in off-campus study (air fare, for example) a student loan can be increased if the student has not already borrowed the maximum allowable amount for the academic year.
  6. Student employment is not provided while studying off-campus. Bonner Scholars should arrange with the Bonner Scholarship Coordinator to do their required service work while they are on their off-campus experience.
  7. May Terms are not considered as off-campus programs. Instead, they are treated as a spring semester class, and additional Earlham-funded financial aid is not available. 
  8. Students must make arrangements with the Accounting office to pay for program charges prior to the beginning of the off-campus experience.
  9. Students planning to be off-campus during the Fall Semester are strongly encouraged to apply for financial aid by April 1 prior to the start of the off-campus program.
  10. Tuition and fees for all approved programs are the same as a semester on Earlham's campus. Earlham's room and board rates may also be charged, depending on whether or not the approved program provides room and board for students.
