Information for International Students

As a state/public university, the University at Buffalo is able to offer very affordable tuition to all its students. International students pay the same tuition as other out-of-state (non-resident) students; there is no special surcharge for international students.

International students are not eligible for federal financial assistance. However, they may be eligible for other types of aid such as university-based scholarships.

Merit-based scholarships are available to freshmen (first-year) international undergraduate students, through the Office of International Admissions. Full or partial scholarships are also available for students recruited for one of UB’s Division I athletic teams.

International graduate students may be eligible for scholarships, assistantships, fellowships and grants from departments and programs that offer such funding. Requirements and deadlines vary by department; visit the Graduate School website for more information about these opportunities.

Information is subject to change without notice due to changes in federal, state and/or institutional rules and regulations. Students must complete a FAFSA every year. Students must be making satisfactory academic progress to continue to receive financial aid.
