Skidmore College

International Students

Each year, Skidmore College provides a few international students with need-based financial aid awards. The awards are very competitive and amounts are determined by the demonstrated financial need of the family. 

**Please note:  international students who enroll as first-year students without applying for financial aid will not be eligible for financial aid in future years.

To be considered for financial need-based grants, be sure to indicate on your admission application that you intend to apply for financial aid.  Once your application for admission is uploaded by Skidmore, you will have the ability to complete our online electronic financial aid application through our admission portal. The online financial aid application becomes available within two days of submitting your admission application.
