You are here: American University Financial Aid Prospective International Students

No need-based financial aid is available to international students.

Eligibility for federal and university need-based aid is limited to U.S. citizens, U.S. permanent residents, and eligible non-citizens who are currently living within the United States for purposes other than studying.

Our International Admissions team understands that students and parents have a lot of questions about financing an education in the U.S. That's why we have compiled information about financial issues and merit scholarship opportunities for both prospective, first-year international students and admitted first-year international students.
