Haverford College provides financial aid to a limited number of international students each year. All of Haverford’s financial aid is need-based.
Those who do receive financial aid will have their demonstrated need met in full and will qualify to reapply for financial aid in subsequent years. International students who do not receive financial aid their first year at Haverford are not eligible to receive aid in subsequent years. International students who need financial aid may apply Early Decision I, Early Decision II, or Regular Decision. They cannot enter as a transfer student.
Financial aid does not cover international travel expenses, nor will it cover living expenses for periods when the College is not in session. Both the student savings expectation and job earnings expectations apply to international students (See “Determining Your Financial Need”).
Permanent residents, eligible noncitizens, or U.S. citizens residing abroad are not considered to be international students for purposes of financial aid, and may apply for aid using the traditional CSS Profile and FAFSA applications.

All students who receive grants and scholarships for educational purposes must be aware that some portion of these funds may be subject to U.S. taxation. Our Tax Information Guide will help you understand how taxation works, and what steps you need to take to make sure all is in order.
