If you are in need of financial aid above and beyond the cost of tuition covered by the Freeman Asian scholarship, you will also need to complete the steps below.


Financial aid for international students is extremely limited and is awarded on the basis of demonstrated need. Wesleyan expects to provide financial assistance to approximately 15 international students from a pool of over 400 such applicants.  No financial aid is available for transfer students who are not US citizens or eligible non-citizens.  As a foreign student, in order to recieve financial aid during your years at Wesleyan, you MUST apply for financial aid and be eligible at the time that you apply for admission.

Upon review of your financial aid application, documentation verifying your family's income may be requested.
