International Student Funding


All international students should be in frequent and regular contact with the International Students and Scholars Office (ISSO), including prior to initial enrollment at UCSF.

International students are not eligible for Federal financial aid. They must rely on their own resources and cannot expect to receive financial aid funding. Non-U.S. citizens and non-permanent resident’s maybe eligible for private educational loans, these loans are available to international students who meet certain criteria.
