Financial Aid: International Financial Aid
International students are eligible for merit-based scholarships that are considered during the admission process. Need-based federal financial aid is not available to international students, but international students are eligible to work on campus for up to 20 hours per week during the academic year and 40 hours per week during the summer and winter sessions.
Students can review job listings in the Careers and Internships and apply directly to the office advertising each position. International students are also eligible to participate in the school's Cooperative Education Internship Program with authorization from a designated school official in the International Student Services office.
A listing of International scholarships and informational websites is available on the SAIC website under the International Affairs section.
Alternative/private loans are available to International students that can secure a co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and is considered creditworthy by the lender. Students may find helpful information on choosing a loan or lender at studentloanlistings.com, finaid.org, or edupass.org. Students are encouraged to check with their home country for student loans before applying for alternative/private loans.
