Other International Aid
A small handful of students do find sponsors for their education in the way of generous individuals, supporting organizations or government programs. However, the Center for International and Intercultural Education does not actively seek out sponsors on behalf of students. It is the sole responsibility of prospective students to secure financial support for their education beyond any amount that ACU may offer in financial aid.
International students are not able to secure loans from US financial institutions to study in the US without a US co-signer. Occasionally, student loan programs in countries such as Sweden, Norway, Canada, etc. allow these loans to be used for international study. Students should inquire to their local governments to know if this is a possibility.
The US Department of State supports at least one US Education Advising Center in almost every country in the world. These centers provide information about US education in general, scholarships, application procedures and tests required for admission such as the TOEFL, SAT and GRE. In addition to the information we provide, we ecourage all students to contact the nearest US Education Advising Center for in-country support. Contact information for these advising centers can be found on the US State Department's Web site at the following URL: http://educationusa.state.gov
