Current USD Students

International Study Abroad Scholarships

Scholarship funds are available for current USD law students who attend a USD Law Summer Study Abroad program. To be considered for a scholarship, USD law students must complete the International Study Abroad Scholarship form. For priority consideration, please complete this form by March 30, 2023.

Financial Aid

USD students who wish to apply for federal student loans for Summer Study Abroad must complete the federal FAFSA form (if you have not already done so). Please note that it may take up to 6 weeks for the law school to receive your completed application. Please use the USD School of Law federal school code, G06976, on your FAFSA to ensure that the Office of Financial Aid receives your processed form.

Current USD students must also submit a completed Summer USD Law Institutional Financial Aid Application by April 1, 2023. The Summer 2023 Institutional Financial Aid Application is available in the Law Student section of the MySanDiego Portal, within Financial Aid and Cost Information. It is also available by visiting and selecting Forms from the drop-down menu under Financial Aid on the blue banner.

The Office of Financial Aid will provide an Offer of Financial Assistance after your file is complete. If additional forms or documentation may be required, you will receive an email, and any required forms can be accessed in the MySanDiego portal. All supplemental forms and documentation must be submitted by May 1, 2023 to avoid delays.

If you are eligible for the federal loan programs but wish to opt out, please notify the Office of Financial Aid and then contact the lender of your choice to apply for a private loan. Depending on the lender, loan funds will be received either electronically or by paper check. If your paper check does not arrive before you leave, you must leave a Power of Attorney on file at the One Stop Student Center office (Hahn University Center 126) designating an individual authorized to negotiate your loan check(s) in your absence. Students applying for a private loan do not need to submit a FAFSA.

If your electronic loan disbursement does not arrive before you leave, please enroll in direct deposit online, on the One Stop tab of the MySanDiego web portal, so any refund can be directly deposited into your savings or checking account. USD cannot mail refunds directly to students when they are abroad.

First time borrowers of federal loan funds at USD must also complete Loan Entrance Counseling prior to disbursement. You may also be required to complete a Master Promissory Note. Students borrowing under the Graduate PLUS Loan program must also be "credit-worthy." This determination will be made by the US Department of Education based on your credit history.

If you borrow a federal loan and withdraw from the summer program, federal regulations may require that all, or a portion, of your loan funds be returned to the lender.
