Federal Rules regarding Duration of Study Abroad

Students receiving federal financial aid should be aware that there are some restrictions on the number of semesters, or course credits, for study abroad that can be counted toward a degree program. These restrictions apply to study at a foreign institution in our traditional study abroad and exchange programs, but not to our faculty-led programs, such as the Dialogue of Civilizations.

While students may use federal financial aid for study abroad and exchange programs, federal regulations limit students receiving federal financial aid to no more than two semesters of study abroad or exchange at participating foreign universities or programs. Generally, this means that you may study abroad at more than one foreign university or program, but may not transfer more than two semesters of study abroad or exchange credit to Northeastern University. Federal regulations mandate that no more than 25% of a student’s educational program or coursework be provided by a foreign university. All credit from all foreign institutions accepted as credit toward the degree is counted in this two semester limit.

If you are unsure of your federal aid status, please consult with your financial aid advisor.
