International students may qualify for academic or financial need based scholarships/grants. Academic scholarships are determined by previous academic record and results on the SAT examination. International student grants are awarded to students demonstrating the financial ability to pay for only a portion of the expected costs of attendance. The maximum amount of scholarship and/or international student grant awarded will be one-half the cost of tuition. In addition, international students can work on campus and earn $2,340 per academic year on campus work-study and $4,960 during summer employment.

Graduate assistantships are awarded by the academic department to which you apply. Assistantships are limited and are granted on a competitive basis. If you are interested in applying for an assistantship it is recommended you submit a letter of interest and a resume with your application materials. Assistantships cover the cost of tuition and non-resident fees, however, stipends awarded with assistantships usually are not enough to cover all living expenses.

Along with using the assortment of online resources available, it is recommended that students also watch for admissions officers and alumni who travel and hold information sessions in their home country. Also, take advantage of social media tools and online chats with current international students, alumni, faculty, or administrators. When choosing a school, it is important to understand what you expect of your experience in the U.S., and thoroughly research how a school's programs, student life, and activities might meet these expectations.
