International Students

Financial aid is generally not available to international students.

Eligibility for federal and University need-based aid is limited to U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and eligible noncitizens who are living within the U.S. for purposes other than studying.

International students applying for admission must therefore present evidence of sufficient funds to cover all tuition, fees, books, and living expenses for their study at Boston University.

More information about financial issues and merit award opportunities for international students is available from BU Admissions.
