FINANCIAL AID FOR NON-U.S. CITIZENS

Aid From Your Home Country

Contact the cultural section of your country’s embassy or ministry of education to inquire about financial aid options and their requirements.

Aid From the U.S. Government

The majority of U.S. government financial assistance is not offered to international students. The U.S. government does provide aid to students from specific countries—you can request more information from your embassy or the U.S. State Department.

Bank Loans

International applicants are encouraged to apply with a cosigner. Cosigners must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and meet the lender’s criteria.
