Institutional financial aid for international students is
limited. Academic scholarships are available to international
students on the basis of academic qualifications, and will be
determined at the time the student’s application for admission is
reviewed. Generally, international students must show evidence of
ability to pay all direct and indirect costs of attendance.
Indirect costs include expenses not covered by tuition, room/board
and fee charges, and are such things as travel, personal living
expenses, and living expenses when school is not in session and
when the student is unable to return home and books. United States
Immigration law requires non-U.S. citizens who are not permanent
residents to submit a Declaration and Certification of Finances
form as proof that assets are available to cover all costs of
attendance. Educational loans are available to international
students through a variety of lending institutions. Virtually all
require the signature of a U.S. co-signer. For more information,
call, write or e-mail the Office of Financial Aid.
NOTE: Financial aid (including scholarships) for United States
citizens living overseas will be determined as other United States
citizens, that is, by academic qualifications and the results of
the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
