Financial Resources

All international students and exchange visitors are required to demonstrate that you have enough funding to support your study and living expenses before your arrival. Living costs in the United States are quite expensive, and it is very important to budget your money carefully. Students and exchange visitors who are here with family members face even higher living costs.

International students are not eligible for UConn need-based financial aid. This page contains additional financial resources for international students, as well as emergency funding resources in the event of unexpected hardship.
