Television Park– The number of international students attending a US college or university continues to grow every year, but the financial aid options for these undergraduates varies among schools.
A total of 974,926 international undergraduates enrolled during the 2014-2015 school year – up 10% from the prior year. While some international students receive financial aid packages, most colleges and universities restrict aid awards to US citizens or legal residents.
