Is financial aid available for international students?

May 20, 2021 | Tagged: | Category: International

We often receive the questions: “Do you offer athletic scholarships? Need-based aid? Merit aid?”

While international students are not eligible for merit, all admitted international students will receive an international grant valued at $17,000. Respectfully, W&J does not offer need-based aid to non-US citizens/permanent residents. As an NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division III institution, neither does W&J award athletic scholarships. Please note that non-US citizens applying for admission must provide proof of funds available for their education – this documentation is necessary to acquire a U.S. visa and therefore is a part of the admissions process.

Please complete this Certification of Financial Support (PDF) or submit other supporting documents. Students relying on a loan to cover any portion of their expenses must provide documentation of a loan pre-approval before an I-20 can be issued. It is recommended that the loan process be completed by July 1st. Supporting documents may include (but are not limited to):

  • A bank statement signed by a bank official showing available funds
  • A letter from an employer verifying income
  • Letter of financial support from sponsor program or loan agency
