If you are not a U.S. citizen or Permanent Resident, you must submit the International Student Financial Aid Application before we will review your application for admission. The U.S. government’s Department of Homeland Security requires that students show that they can support themselves financially. Enrolling students must provide an official bank statement. If you are offered a merit scholarship, this amount can be lower. Please note that full scholarships are not available. If you are sponsored by your government, the financial guarantee letter will be accepted instead of the International Student Financial Aid Application.

Merit Scholarships
We consider all admitted international applicants for academic, or merit-based scholarships. These awards are based primarily on academic achievement: your grades, the strength of your academic program, your TOEFL or IELTS scores, and your SAT scores if submitted. If offered, our international student scholarships of up to $45,000 (USD) are renewable at the same dollar amount each year as long as you maintain satisfactory academic progress and full-time enrollment.

Need-based Financial Aid
It is also worth noting that Susquehanna University does not offer any need-based financial aid for international students. Students requiring need-based financial aid can research their options on the NAFSA webpage.
