Financial Aid

Degree-seeking students may apply for financial aid and scholarships. While the average award is approximately one-half of tuition, the range of financial aid awards is based upon family resources and can be up to the full comprehensive fee.  Scholarships, grants, on-campus employment, and loans are awarded to students who demonstrate academic excellence and financial need.

To apply for need-based financial aid, applicants should complete the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE. The International Student Financial Aid Application may be submitted instead of the CSS PROFILE, if necessary.

While most financial assistance for international students is based on financial need, applicants are welcome to apply for non-need merit scholarships. You can find information about how to apply here.

For student visa purposes, all applicants are required to complete the International Student Certification of Finances form to prove adequate financial support for the first and subsequent years of studies. If you are applying for financial aid, this requirement can be waived until you decide to enroll.

For the 2016-17 academic year, estimated I-20/DS-2019 visa certification expenses are $59,060 ($44,180 for tuition, $10,080 for room and board, and an allowance of $4,800 for health insurance, books, and personal expenses). Costs are expected to increase annually.
