Obtaining Funds for Non-Billable Items
High-need Financial Aid students can obtain funds for non-billable budget items via a financial aid “refund.” Some high-need students not only will owe nothing on their billing statement but will have enough aid leftover to cover their round-trip transportation and other costs after their billed charges are paid. The following options are only available to students who will have a large enough refund available in their accounts to cover the travel charge. See more about studying away on Financial Aid.
Option 1: Purchase your own flights upfront and reimburse yourself out of the account refund available at the start of the term. Option 2: If option 1 is not possible and if you qualify for this support, you may be able to book your flight throughthe College’s travel service, Travel Leaders, where it is charged directly to your D-Pay account and your D-Pay credit balance will cover the cost of the ticket. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid with any questions.Note: Amounts listed for individual budget items are the best estimates currently available.
