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.

There are several merit-based scholarships available to freshmen (first-year) international undergraduate students, including the International Freshman, Provost Scholarships and Presidential Scholarships. In addition, partial or full scholarships are available for students recruited for one of UB’s Division I athletic teams. For more information, visit http://wings.buffalo.edu/intadmit/scholarshipsfresh.htm or contact the Office of International Admissions.

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.
