An international student is defined as one who is not a citizen or permanent resident alien of the United States. Hampshire College offers a limited amount of financial aid (grant) assistance to international students who demonstrate financial need. While the competition for international grants is strong, Hampshire is committed to maintaining and expanding its global campus community.
This grant is renewable for a maximum of eight semesters, provided the student is enrolled and is making satisfactory academic progress. The amount of grant aid cannot be increased in renewal years. These grants can cover up to the cost of tuition. Students who receive grant assistance are responsible for any remaining cost of tuition, as well as the cost of room, board, and other expenses.
We encourage students to apply for financial aid at the same time they apply for admission to Hampshire College. Financial assistance is not available to international students who did not receive aid upon admittance. Financial aid is not available for students who seek a second bachelor's degree.

"There are two reasons why Hampshire graduates achieve so much. One is the kind of person the college attracts. The other is what the college does for them by equipping them to become their own wide-ranging explorers and connection-seekers."
