Students participating in a study abroad program through Warren Wilson College retain their financial aid in most cases. Students who choose to study abroad through an external program option should be aware that their federal, state, and Warren Wilson financial aid will most likely not be applicable while the student is on a leave of absence. Students should read Financial Aid/Study Abroad Questions and contact Warren Wilson's Financial Aid Office for more details.
