Do you have financial support for international students?

  • Each new student (Intensive ESL, High School, and College) taking 12 or more High School or College credits, or four (4) Intensive English as a Second Language (IESL) classes, will receive a $500 tuition reduction for a maximum of 2 quarters for the 2020-2021 Academic Year (Fall, Winter, Spring). This amounts to a tuition savings of $1,000 to students. For example, if a student starts in Fall Quarter 2020 or Winter Quarter 2021, they will receive a tuition reduction of $500 each quarter for two quarters (total of $1,000). However, if an international student starts in Spring Quarter 2021, they will receive a tuition reduction for one quarter only (total of $500).
  • We also have an OIP $1,000 New Student Merit Based Scholarship opportunity for all new international students starting Fall 2020. For more information and to see the application click here.
