UGA Exchange Programs

UGA Independent Experience Programs


University of Georgia students who have been awarded federal or state financial aid, including the HOPE or Zell Miller scholarships, or student loans, may use their financial aid to study away on a UGA direct credit or exchange program, as well as through approved external study away programs.  Eligible students may also work with the Office of Student Financial Aid to potentially update their official "cost of attendance" for the study away term, in order to reflect the full cost of studying away and accurately calculate their financial aid package. In addition, students may wish to explore merit and need-based scholarships and fellowships to help support the cost of a study away program. Further information about scholarships is available here.
