Financial Aid: International Students

We are excited that you have chosen our school to expand your education!  Armstrong has a proven curriculum that demonstrates a successful learning experience.   We understand that the cost of education has risen, however, the Office of Financial Aid is here to assist all students by improving the students' knowledge of aid. We want Armstrong’s students to be aware of the many opportunities to finance an education.

Types of Aid Available

Federal Student Aid * (Grants, work-study and Loans)

Some non-U.S. citizens qualify for federal student aid. To find out if you qualify as an "eligible noncitizen" visit the Federal Student Aid site *. If you are not an eligible noncitizen then you cannot receive federal student aid. Students who have only a “Notice of Approval to Apply for Permanent Residence” (I-171 or I-464), are in the U.S. on an F-1 or F-2 student visa, or on a J-1 or J-2 Exchange Visitor Visa, or who hold a G series visa (pertaining to international organizations) do not qualify for federal student aid.

Scholarships

Non-U.S. citizens may qualify for a wide range of scholarships.

Loans

Eligible noncitizens may request federal Direct Loans. Non-U.S. citizens may apply for Alternative Loans. Alternative education loans are created and offered by private lenders, such as banks and credit unions. They are credit-based loans and the lender sets the terms and conditions of the loan.
