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 and a certification of finances form, available from the College’s admission and student financial services offices.

In order to be considered for federal, state, or educational opportunity programs, international students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents; possess a valid alien registration receipt card; have an arrival-departure record (I-94) from the Department of Homeland Security showing a status of refugee, asylum granted, parole (I-94 confirms parole for a minimum of one year and that status has not expired), or Cuban-Haitian entrant; possess a valid temporary resident card (I-688); or have a conditional permanent resident card (I-151C).
