Can I apply for financial aid as an international student?

Hello! I'm a junior from outside the US, and I'm considering applying to colleges in the US. I'm wondering if I can apply for financial aid as an international student, and if so, what's the process like? Thanks for any help!

Hi there! It's great that you're considering studying in the US. The good news is that, yes, international students can apply for financial aid at many colleges and universities in the United States. However, the process and availability of aid can vary depending on the institution. Some schools are more generous with financial aid for international students, while others may have more limited funding available. To start, you should research the financial aid policies of the colleges you're interested in and identify the ones that offer aid to international students. The International Student Financial Aid Application (ISFAA) is a common form used by many schools to assess financial need for international applicants. You may also be required to submit the CSS Profile, which is another financial aid application form. Additionally, you should look into scholarships and grants that are specifically targeted at international students. These can be offered by the college itself, or by external organizations. Remember to apply early and explore all your options. Best of luck with your college applications and your search for financial aid!
