Question: I am an international student who wants to go to college in the USA. I have no money and want my major to be business administration. What steps should I take?
It is difficult--but still possible--for international students to receive financial aid from US colleges and universities. This is because the colleges cannot rely on US government money for assistance (as they can with domestic candidates) and must thus fund international students using their own resources. A small handful of colleges are "need blind" for international applicants (meaning that they do not consider financial need when making admission decisions but will then provide aid to those who require it). The last Web site mentioned below includes a list of need-blind schools.
