Do you offer financial aid to international students? Does this affect my chances of being admitted?

Unfortunately, the University of Virginia does not offer any need-based financial aid to foreign national students; citizens of the U.S., permanent residents of the U.S., and some other individuals allowed to remain in the U.S. indefinitely are eligible, but most foreign nationals are not. Unless a foreign-national applicant is offered a merit scholarship (see below), he or she must satisfy the requirements of the Financial Guarantee Form before the University will issue any visa document.
