International Students

International students are eligible for financial assistance from Yeshiva University, which may include a grant, a student loan or both. International students interested in applying for assistance should complete and submit the International Student Financial Aid Application as soon possible after they submit their application for admission. Students who are not citizens, nationals, permanent residents or eligible non-citizens of the United States* are considered international students, and as such, are not eligible for federal student aid. Therefore, if entitled, foreign students may be awarded a YU Loan of up to $8,000 for the year in addition to any grants that they will be receiving.

Canadian students may also be eligible to receive financial assistance for study at Yeshiva University through the Canada Student Loans Program. For more information on the program, including eligibility requirements, please visit the program's website.

Additional information on non-university funded financial assistance, including private scholarships and international student loans, is available through International Education Financial Aid.

*Eligible non-citizens include refugees, those granted asylum, and temporary residents as defined by the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986.
