Financial Support and Visa Process for International Students

International students are offered admission without regard to their ability to pay. International students seeking aid must complete the International Student Financial Aid Application available within a student application for admission. Students demonstrating financial need are eligible for scholarships to cover a portion of their tuition. School-specific forms are also required; a summary of those forms may be found on the School of Nursing website at

U.S. immigration regulations require that the University have proof of full financial support before an I-20 can be issued. If additional family members are accompanying the student to the United States, financial support is required for their health insurance and living expenses as well.
