International Applicants

Important information on financial aid for international applicants

In general, international students are not eligible for student loans, federal traineeships, fellowships, or scholarships. International students may be eligible for selected scholarships or assistantships. (A significant number of our international doctoral students are supported by assistantships.)

Important: At the time of admission, international applicants who have not been offered financial aid are required to submit an affidavit, indicating that they have sufficient funds to cover their tuition and living expenses for the duration of the program. Visa documents are issued on the basis of these affidavits, and the expectation of self-support continues throughout the period of enrollment.

International students should always consult with the University’s Office of International Services before applying for student employment.
