International Students

Tech Trolly

International students are not eligible for federal or state financial aid programs, and institutional scholarships administered by Georgia Tech’s Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA) are often not awarded to international students. However, there are some alternative private and emergency financial aid options for international students.

Private Loans

A variety of privately funded loan programs are available to international students. Most banks require a creditworthy co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident with a permanent U.S. address. If approved for a private loan, our office will coordinate with the loan program.
