Financial Aid/Scholarships 

Although as an international student you do not qualify for state (Oklahoma) or federal (U.S. Government) financial assistance programs, first-time international students are guaranteed an out-of-state tuition waiver in the amount of $1,500 per semester (two semesters) to help cover the cost of non-resident tuition.

International students become eligible for the non-resident tuition waiver at the beginning of their third semester at Northwestern. The non-resident tuition waiver is a percentage-based tuition waiver using Cumulative GPA criteria from all higher education institutions attended.

Students are required to be a member of at least one campus organization to be eligible for a non-resident tuition waiver. The percentage of non-resident tuition waived beginning the student’s third semester is based on the following scale:

Cumulative GPA

Amount of Tuition Waived

0.00-1.99

0%

2.00-2.99

25%

3.00-3.29

50%

3.30-3.69

75%

3.70-4.00

90%

 

*The percentages noted above are only applied to a portion of the out-of-state tuition.*

 

International students also are eligible for continuing student and participation scholarships to help defray costs. Also, if you have siblings attending Northwestern and living in university housing, be sure to ask us about the Sibling/Family Housing Waiver.
