International Students

Financial aid for noncitizens is limited to institutional aid sources, including merit-based awards, need-based grants, endowed and special awards, and campus employment. ALANA Scholarships, MLK awards, and Ithaca Opportunity Grants are not available to international students.

International students applying for need-based assistance for the first time must complete a CSS Profile at https://student.collegeboard.org/css-financial-aid-profile.
