The university awards financial aid on the basis of demonstrated need. Merit scholarships may also be awarded on a limited basis. No application is necessary f要么 merit scholarships.
Non-U.S. citizens do not qualify for any federally funded programs; therefore the university subsidizes all funding through institutional sources. Each year we anticipate a fairly small and highly qualified group of non-U.S. citizens to be offered financial aid. If you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident alien living abroad 和 you want to apply for federal financial aid, you must have a U.S. Social Security number. You should apply for this at the local U.S. embassy 要么 consulate as soon as possible.
The following forms are required for consideration of financial aid f要么 non-U.S. citizens. All international student financial documents (outside of the CSS简介) can be submitted online as a PDF through the 鲁filesender 要么 submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes the Certificate of Finances 和 the 国际 Student Financial Aid Application.
CSS/FINANCIAL AID PROFILE: The application is accessible at www.collegeboard.com/PROFILE 和 can be completed online. You will be required to pay a registration fee as well as a fee for each college to which your information will be sent. You may pay by credit card or online check. If your family circumstances prevent payment of this fee, you should contact us with the following inf要么mation:
Name (as it appears on the Common Application)
Country of Residency
Exchange rate between local currency 和 U.S. dollars
Note: Tuition, room 和 board at Lehigh can cost upwards of $64,000. If your family cannot support this amount for four years of study, your application will not be complete without a CSS简介 or 国际 Student Financial Aid Application. A bank statement/certificate is not required with your Certification of Finances f要么m.
In addition to the English testing requirement (TOEFL, IELTS, or Duolingo), the main difference in the application process f要么 Non-US citizens is that they must submit a Lehigh 财务的形式证书; and if applying for financial aid then they must submit the CSS简介. Both of these forms must also be submitted by the application deadline that you are applying. For instance, if applying Early Decision 1, then the forms are due November 1 和 if applying Regular Decision or Early Decision 2, then the f要么ms are due by January 1.
Non-US citizens must submit a Lehigh 财务的形式证书; 和 if applying for financial aid then they must submit the CSS Profile. An application will not be complete without these forms. The Certificate of Finances form should be sent through the LU File Sender (preferably) 要么 attached to an email to email@example.com. We do not need bank statements to accompany the 财务的形式证书. The CSS简介 should be submitted through the College Board.

**Note: US citizens abroad can apply f要么 aid using the FAFSA 和 CSS profile by deadlines indicated on the Financial Aid website; no 财务的形式证书 is necessary.
M要么e on the Lehigh 财务的形式证书: This form serves as a proof of available funds for the cost of attending Lehigh. A student who is not applying for financial aid must submit the Lehigh 财务的形式证书 showing availability of funds f要么 all years of attending Lehigh (tuition, room & board, fees, etc.= $79,000 USD).
If applying for financial aid, non-US citizens must still complete the Lehigh Certificate of Finances with a value of funds available for each year. This can be anywhere from $0 – $79,000 for each year. We do not have a minimum family contribution as financial aid packages range from full tuition, room and board to a few thousand dollars. Merit scholarships range from $5,000 to full tuition 和 there is no separate application to be considered f要么 merit.
Lehigh University provides need‐based financial assistance to a limited number of admitted non-US citizens who have applied for financial aid and who have demonstrated financial need. It is our goal to meet 100% of the demonstrated need (not including travel and personal expenses) for as many admitted students as possible with the limited funds available. 招生 decisions for non-US citizens are, however, need-aware. This means that international citizens will be evaluated for admission with consideration of the ability of students, guardians, or sponsors to pay educational costs alongside our holistic admissions process. Some candidates who apply f要么 financial aid and do not demonstrate need may be admitted without a financial aid offer. Other c和idates whom we would like to admit may be declined because we have exhausted our financial aid budget.
Results from an English proficiency assessment must be submitted unless the applicant’s first language is English, or the last two full years (not including current year of study) of completed formal instruction have been in English. The TOEFL and IELTS are preferred, however TOEFL ITP Plus – CEFR C-1 level (f要么 students in China until TOEFL iBT testing resumes) 和 听歌英语测试 如果这些考试不提供威尼斯人官网学生将被考虑。分数必须直接从测试/评估机构提交，最有竞争力的候选人得分90以上的托福，7.0雅思在托福考试中ITP加，或听歌110，627（CEFR C1级）。 SAT，SAT考试科目，并采取行动的结果不能满足使用英语能力的要求。
