Admitted international students demonstrating financial need are eligible for financial assistance. Financial need is assessed by the Financial Aid Office based on the information you and your family accurately and truthfully submit on the International Student Financial Aid Application.

Applying for Financial Assistance

To apply for financial assistance you must submit the International Student Financial Aid Application. This form must be submitted before your application for admission can be considered. Therefore we strongly encourage you to mail this at your earliest convenience.

Special notes:

  • International students who do not apply for aid at the time of admission should not expect aid for the duration of their four years at Kalamazoo College.
  • Financial aid awards covering the entire cost of attendance are extremely rare and very competitive.
