International Students

Purdue has one of the most diverse student populations in the country with students from over 120 different countries, and we'd love to have you join our campus. For information about the admissions process and financial documentation required to attend Purdue as an international student, check out the Office of International Students and Scholars website.

Can international students receive aid?

Although need-based financial aid isn't typically available to students who do not meet financial aid citizenship requirements, merit-based financial aid may be available for both undergraduate and graduate students from private sources; visit eduPass for more information.

Loans may also be available to both undergraduate and graduate students who have a U.S. citizen co-signer. These loan amounts are limited to the estimated cost of attendance minus what your resources are; in other words, you can only receive enough aid to cover the estimated cost of attendance. The Division of Financial Aid determines eligibility for the alternative loan programs by certifying the application submitted through the private lenders.
