In almost all the information, it says "in most cases, financial aid will be available." What does that mean?

This means that there may be other regulations required for certain types of financial aid, such as following the Standards of Academic Progress, submitting documentation for FAFSA verification, or checking with your scholarship provider to determine if you would be able to receive your scholarship while studying abroad. The best thing to do is to review your account for active messages or contact the Student Financial Aid Office if you are unsure about your eligibility for aid.
