SU Abroad Plane Ticket Loan Program Application
The SU Abroad Plane Loan Ticket Program allows students who are fully funded with need based
financial aid to apply their financial aid funds toward the purchase of their plane ticket abroad. The
program is not designed for students who have a family credit card or other reasonable means to cover
the cost of the plane ticket, i.e. parent loans. Please note: Non SU, international, graduate, and non-
aided students do not qualify.
Students must be anticipating a refund on their Bursar account after all SU costs have been paid to
participate in this program. If a student has a ‘credit’ on their MySlice Bursar account in excess of the
purchase price of the plane ticket, they may book their ticket through Advantage Travel, and the cost
will be deducted from their financial aid funds (prior approval must be given before a student reserves a
ticket through Advantage Travel).
