International Students: Eligibility and Application Information

Students standing in a hallway in discussion.

Mount Holyoke provides need-based financial aid to qualifying international applicants. (Applicants are automatically considered for merit assistance with their admission application.)

Important Information for Applicants

  • Review our application requirements and Eligibility & Policies
  • Apply on time.
  • Indicate your intention to apply for financial aid on your admission application (the Common Application). If you do not you cannot be considered for financial aid while you are enrolled at Mount Holyoke regardless of changes in financial circumstances. This policy also applies to applicants who indicate on the admission application that they plan to apply for financial aid but subsequently notify the Office of Admission or Student Financial Services that they no longer intend to apply for aid.
  • It is important to know that while financial aid is available a Family Contribution will be expected; financial aid is not available to cover full educational costs.
  • Contact us with any questions you may have. We're happy to assist you.
