Financial Aid for International Students

Financial Aid for International Students

A Knox education is affordable
for international students, and nearly 10% of Knox students are from outside the United States.


International Financial Aid
We have a scholarship program -- generally limited to no more than one-half of our comprehensive fee -- for non-U.S. citizens who demonstrate financial need and exceptional academic promise. To be considered for admission with financial assistance, please complete and return the Financial Aid Application for International Students (PDF) with your completed application for admission.

Visas
To be eligible for the non-immigrant student visa (F-1), non-citizens must document adequate financial resources -- from family, sponsors, and scholarships -- to meet the full costs of attending Knox. The availability of financial resources may be a factor in determining the admission of non-U.S. citizens who are academically qualified but do not meet financial requirements. Please submit the Certification of Finances Form (PDF) to document these resources.

Making a Plan
When making a four-year plan to attend Knox, your family should anticipate annual increases of 4% to 6% in college costs, as well as fluctuations in currency exchange rates.

Returning International Students
Financial aid is not reevaluated each year, so you only have to apply once.

U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents Living Abroad
Please refer to the Cost and Financial Aid page if you're a U.S. citizen or permanent resident living abroad.
