Need-Based Financial Aid Policy for International Students

Financial aid from Boston University is not available to international students. For general information about financial assistance, request the booklet “Financial Planning for Study in the United States” from the U.S. Information Agency or a binational advising center in your home country.

International students pay the same tuition as U.S. students. Please consult our current tuition rates.
