A Note for International Students

Neither Emerson College nor the U.S. federal government provides need-based financial assistance to international students. However, you may be eligible for merit-based awards through the Graduate Admission Office and Alternative Loans through select private lenders.

When you earn your graduate degree from Emerson, you’re not only making an investment in your career—you’re creating a pathway towards numerous opportunities and lifelong connections.

Our Office of Financial Aid will make every effort to help you finance the costs. With careful financial planning, you’ll be surprised at how affordable an Emerson graduate education can be.

About three-fourths (¾) of our students receive some type of financial assistance and we distribute nearly $38 million each year in aid that typically includes grants and scholarships, loans, and federal work study.
