For International Students

  • Financial Aid for Undergraduate International Students - This resource provides information primarily for students with non-immigrant visas (F-1, J-1, etc.).

Minimal scholarship aid is available to international students, and most of it is reserved for graduate study. Generally, U.S. institutions offer little, if any, discount on tuition, although both private and public institutions may waive application fees in some situations.
