International Student Financial Aid

Colorado Technical University is committed to ensuring that all international students receive a meaningful and successful educational experience. To achieve that objective, CTU requires that all international students provide evidence of financial resources necessary to start and complete the educational program offered at our university.

In order to attend Colorado Technical University, international students must supply an affidavit of financial support and a bank statement indicating sufficient financial resources for study in the United States. F-1 visa students must have adequate funding to cover tuition, fees, and living expenses for a minimum of three terms. As a student, you will be responsible for paying your tuition and fees in U.S. dollars only. At this time, we only offer student federal financial aid to U.S. citizens and eligible non-citizens who qualify.

The cost of tuition varies depending upon the degree program you select at CTU. Please refer to the tuition schedules for our online degrees and Colorado Springs and Denver campus degrees which list costs in U.S. dollars for each degree program. Applicants to our Colorado campuses should be aware that they are not eligible for financial aid and cannot work legally in the United States without Immigration and Naturalization Service permission. The same obligations exist for international students as for all other students. Prospective students should read the entire catalog carefully to ensure that they understand the administrative, academic and financial requirements of an educational program at Colorado Technical University.

Assistance under federal, state or institutional financial aid programs is usually limited to U.S. citizens. This is due to the use of U.S. tax funds that partially or fully support such aid. International students are, therefore, encouraged to check with the appropriate authorities within their country for assistance programs that may exist for their benefit. International students are required to prearrange coverage for all their educational and living expenses (if attending one of our ground campuses) prior to acceptance at Colorado Technical University.

Other options that you may be able to use to fund your education at Colorado Technical University, include:

Employer Reimbursement

Some employers provide educational assistance as a benefit to help advance the skills and educational level of their employees. CTU can help you explore this option for funding your education.

Private Loans

For alternative loans, international students can be eligible for private loans provided they apply with a credit-worthy U.S. Citizen. All available options to international students will be explored with the assistance of a financial aid advisor.

Cash Payment Plan

At Colorado Technical University, we offer payment plans to help students fund their education, and these payment plans are interest free. If you are accepted to the University, a Financial Aid Advisor will help you set up a personal payment plan and develop a financial solution that meets your unique needs.
