Financial Aid Information for International Students

International students are fully eligible for merit-based scholarship assistance from the School of Law. International students should understand, however, that scholarship assistance from the University typically will cover only a portion of the total costs of education, so additional personal or family resources, financial assistance from the applicant’s employer or home country, or other sources of financing will be required.

Students who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents are NOT eligible to borrow under any current federal aid programs. International students may wish to apply for private educational loan resources, and should be aware that most private lenders require a U.S. co-signer. International students should contact private lenders directly to research their borrowing options. 


The University of Virginia partners with Flywire to provide a fast, secure way to submit international and wire transfer payments through UVAPay. You can pay in your local or other desired currency with available payment methods (e.g., international credit cards and debit cards, wire transfers, and other international payment options).
