International Student Financial Aid Steps


Undergraduate international students are eligible for merit, talent and athletic scholarships. While the scholarships range from $6,000 to full tuition, there are only a limited number available to international students.
To qualify for a merit-based award, you must have scored at least a 100 TOEFL or 1580 on the SAT and have superior academic marks. Portfolio reviews and auditions are required for students applying for talent awards.
All undergraduate applicants are reviewed for a scholarship recommendation once a complete application is submitted. There is no separate scholarship application. Candidates are generally notified within three weeks of their acceptance letter.


International students can borrow under alternative loan programs, but they require a cosigner who is a U.S. citizen. International students are not eligible for U.S. federal loans.

Online Payments

International students can pay their tuition deposit and/or bill from any bank in any country, often in their home currency, using the peerTransfer service. Learn more about making online payments with peerTransfer.
