Financial aid for international students

Connecticut College meets full demonstrated financial need of all applicants regardless of citizenship.  Depending on the level of financial need, these awards may cover the full cost of tuition, room, board, books, supplies and health insurance.  Admission is highly competitive to Connecticut College.  We look for students who have shown outstanding academic ability, a high level of competence in English, and notable non-academic involvement. 

The most important step in the financial aid process is for you to provide financial information about you and your family.

See application requirements and deadlines for international students. 

When you have been admitted to the College, an offer of financial aid will accompany your acceptance letter. Typically, this offer is in the form of a grant. The amount of the grant is dependent upon financial need.

At a minimum, all international students are expected to fund transportation costs and personal expenses.

Once you review your offer of financial aid, you are encouraged to contact our staff with any questions. Due to delays in international mail, please email or fax your inquiries.
