International Admission - Financial Considerations

Financial assistance for UNCW for international students is extremely limited since the out-of-state tuition at UNCW is lower than at many comparable institutions. To research outside sources for funds, please review the following websites:

Financial Assistance Websites
UNCW International Student Merit Scholarship- $5,000

Every international undergraduate applicant who wants to have UNCW's F-1 sponsorship must present evidence of sufficient financial resources to meet projected expenses. This information will be requested by the Office of International Programs after a student is admitted if visa sponsorship is needed.
