Financial Aid for Internationals

Applying for Financial Aid

International students must complete the financial affidavit as part of the pre-application process.  The financial affidavit indicates where your financial support will come from to fund your studies at Houghton. Your support may come from your own personal funds or those of a family member or sponsor. Since Houghton has limited funds to offer international students, we expect you to cover all yearly expenses.  Download the pre-application and financial affidavit here.

Grants and Scholarships

The following is a partial list of financial aid programs available to TCKs and International students.

Academic scholarship - These awards are based on a student's academic record.

Excellence scholarships - These awards range from $5,000 to full tuition and are based on a student's application in the specific areas.

Houghton College Grants - These grants provide financial assistance to students with demonstrated financial need or other positive personal qualities.

Performance Grants - Performance grants are awarded to students for displaying exceptional talent in fine arts.

On-campus Work Opportunities - There are many jobs available on campus, within specific departments. A social security card is required to obtain work on campus and Houghton will help international students obtain their card. A student typically works between 8-10 hours per week.
