Payments for Overseas Academic Programs

If you are planning to use financial aid to help pay for a semester abroad through one of Albany's or another school's Overseas Academic Programs, a little planning beforehand will save you a lot of time and trouble later on.

Before you go, remember to:

  • Please visit the Financial Aid Quick Link Page to complete any Master Promissory notes or entrance counseling for Federal Direct or Perkins Loans.
  • Consider setting up an E-refund Account on
  • Consider giving Power of Attorney to your parents so that they can cash and draw checks for you.  
  • Make arrangements in the Student Services Center if you want us to use your aid to pay for costs at your host school.
Bon Voyage!!
