International Students and Financial Aid

As a public university, Binghamton University is able to offer an elite education at a fraction of the cost of U.S. private schools. International students are not eligible for federal/state funding, however, we encourage you to refer to the information maintained by the Office of International Student and Scholar Services Office (ISSS) which may be helpful to you.

Alternative loans can also be an option for international students (must have a U.S. Citizen as a co-signer). These loans are private loans specifically used for educational expenses and are limited to the cost of attendance minus other aid offered. Learn more about Alternative Loans here.

If a student visa is required to enroll, international students must submit an International Student Financial Statement and an official bank statement verifying their ability to meet all education and living expenses for the first year of study.

Current students are encouraged to review these funding options maintained by the Office of International Students and Scholar Services.
