Financial Aid for International Students
To apply for financial assistance through the federal government, you will need to be a U.S. citizen or a Permanent Resident (green card holder). More information can be found by visiting https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/eligibility/non-us-citizens.
If this will not be the case for you, you may look into Private Student Loans through private lending institutions. The majority of lenders require that a borrower who is a citizen of a country other than the United States or who are non-green cardholders to have a co-signer who is a U.S. citizen to be approved.
Prospective students who submit an admission application and are admitted into the program are considered for certain scholarship awards. For additional information regarding GSEP scholarship opportunities available to new students, please visit our scholarship web page.
