If you are admitted, we will email you a financial aid award (based on aid application information) which will have a Financial Verification Form (FVF) attached to it. After completing the FVF, return it to Shiazong Moua.
You must demonstrate the ability to cover the cost of an entire year of education. View the tuition and fees for a year at Northwestern and remember you will need to be prepared to pay similar amounts for each year enrolled at Northwestern.
Unofficial copies can be sent from the student and family to start the I-20 process. However, an official copy must also be sent directly from the bank to Northwestern per Federal policy. Lastly, the bank statement must clearly state the account name and balance within the last 30 days. If possible, please have bank statements converted to U.S. dollars.
You will be asked to transfer a $4,000 (USD) deposit to the University of Northwestern – St. Paul Student Accounts office. This amount will be credited to your university bill.
You will be issued an I-20, which you will need to acquire a student visa to study in the United States. Please work with the U.S. Consulate or Embassy in your country to obtain your student F-1 visa. If you are unable to attend Northwestern for some reason, your $4,000 will be refunded.
Once you have acquired an F-1 student visa, you must contact your admission counselor, Shiazong Moua, to inform her of your travel plans. At that time, you will be guided through the process of registering for classes and making your housing arrangements.
Students age 25 or older cannot live in residence halls. They must make their own off-campus housing and transportation arrangements. Leased housing in the Pittman South Residence or the Southeast Residence building is available for students age 25 or older or who are married. Students age 25 or younger and with fewer than 60 college credits are required to live on campus in our residence halls.
