The University provides over $10 million each year in financial aid to students who are not citizens or permanent residents of the United States, Canada, or Mexico.
However, because the offer of admission for non-citizens is directly linked to their ability to meet expenses, candidates whose families have the financial means to afford educational costs are encouraged not to apply for financial aid.
As an international student, please keep in mind that a portion of the grant funding you receive from Penn may be subject to U.S. taxes. You will see a charge on your student account indicating any taxes Penn has paid on your behalf. Note that these taxes cannot be covered by additional grant funding from Penn. You may be able to recoup some of this funding by filing an annual tax return. If you have questions after receiving your bill, please contact SRFS at 215-898-1988 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
