International/DACA Students

To receive Federal funds from the Financial Aid Office a student must be a U.S citizen or permanent resident of the U.S.

International students are required to secure funding for tuition and fees prior to the first day of class regardless of your loan application process. If tuition and fees are not paid by the first day of class you may be assessed a late payment fee, assessed by the Bursar’s Office (see policy on late payments at Penalty on Late Payment of Tuition and Mandatory Fees Policy A2.8.50.2   .

Please refer to the Tuition Due Schedules for payment information.

Private alternative loans may be available to international students who have a U.S. co-signer that is credit worthy.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a student that has received deferred action under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals process. DACA students are undocumented and are not eligible for financial aid but may be eligible for private alternative loans like our international students.
