International Students Financial Aid

The process of paying for college can be complex and intimidating, especially when you are doing it for the first time. As you carry out this process, please remember that we are here to help. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact the Office of Financial Aid.

As part of their preparation to study at ENC, international students who are not permanent residents of the United States must obtain a student visa. Those students admitted to the U.S. on student visas must enroll as full-time students and register for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester. You will find a full list of International student admissions requirements here.

Visas may not be requested or obtained until the student has been accepted to the school, has paid the enrollment deposit, and has provided requested documentation required to process visa paperwork.

Getting a visa takes time—in some countries as much as several months. It is the student’s responsibility to follow up with all paperwork, and to obtain the visa in enough time to arrive in Quincy for orientation.  The Office of Financial Aid uses the following information to evaluate an international student's financial aid award package.

International students will be required to file:

1. An ENC Foreign Student Certification of Finances form.

2. At least two of the following three types of documentation:

a) Previous year National or Federal tax forms for all persons named on the Foreign Student Certification of Finances form, including the student, the student’s spouse, the student’s parent(s), and the student’s sponsor(s);

b) Employment statement(s) from employer(s) that include annual salary information for all persons named on the Foreign Student Certification of Finances form, including the student, the student’s spouse, the student’s parent(s), and the student’s sponsor(s)

c) Bank statements bearing an official bank signature and/or seal documenting the resources of all persons named on the Foreign Student Certification of Finances form, including the student, the   student’s spouse, the student’s parent(s) and the student’s sponsor(s).

3. If you would like to be considered for need-based institutional aid, you may need to provide additional financial information to the Office of Financial Aid in order to calculate your family's Expected Family Contribution (EFC). You may complete the online EFC calculator to get an idea of the required information.
