Federal financial aid cut for non-Mason study abroad programs

At the beginning of the fall semester, the Office of Financial Aid informed the Center for Global Education that federal financial aid would no longer be applied to non-Mason study abroad programs.

Changes to federal financial aid regulations have changed the financial aid office’s interpretation of how aid can be applied to these study abroad programs, which are not directly affiliated with the university.

Mason holds first student summit on global education

The Center for Global Education held its first ever student summit on global education, which allowed students to share their experiences studying abroad.

On Nov. 13, students presented poster boards with their study abroad experiences in the Johnson Center third floor atrium. Later that afternoon, students showed slideshows and videos that chronicled their trips in a study abroad panel. The presentations included photos, lessons the students learned and tips for prospective study abroad students.
