I am going to Florence as a part of my major. What do I need to do?

Most colleges offer informational meetings where a representative from the Student Financial Aid Office will present. OGE provides financial aid with a roster of attendees and we will update your Cost of Attendance accordingly the semester before you leave. That information is used to calculate a new cost of attendance based on the higher costs of the program. Your account will be updated to show your eligibility to cover additional expenses while abroad. You do not automatically qualify for additional aid, but you can search for scholarships or apply for additional loan money. Monitor your “Active Messages” from the Student Financial Aid Office by logging into the new Flashline:

  • Log on to FlashLine and select the Student tab
