Financial Aid for International Students

Gettysburg College embraces diversity and has a strong commitment to our international students. We strive to meet the demonstrated financial need for all admitted international students; however, the financial aid process is highly competitive and funds are limited.

    How is financial aid determined for international students?

    Gettysburg College awards financial aid based on financial need. Once need is determined, academic achievement, scholastic aptitude, and promise of contribution as a student and citizen are factors used to determine financial aid awards.

    International students have the potential to receive a grant amount equal to full tuition but that is not ordinarily the case. Awards of loan and employment are usually part of a financial aid package. There is also an expectation that families will contribute to the student’s educational costs.

    When will I be notified of a financial aid decision?

    Applicants will receive a financial aid decision with their admissions acceptance letter if the financial aid paperwork is on file at the College.
