International Students at UCI

Welcome to our global community.

As an international student, you probably have a unique set of questions, including ones about financial aid. It's our job to get you the information you need so you can start your journey with UCI. We're here to help you and your family know what resources are available and what you need to do to apply.

As an international student, be aware that you are not eligible for federal or state aid. Although international students aren’t eligible for financial aid, all graduate students are eligible to receive university fellowship funding and/or employment as a teaching assistant or graduate student researcher, depending on your academic units and the availability of funds.

If you will be receiving tuition assistance from a third party, you can email our office at:
