Im an international student seeking aid that has already been accepted to Emory. I waited for my fin aid award for several aid until I decided to send an email and ask the fin aid office what was the problem. Their response was the following:
As an international student you are not eligible for any federal, state or institutional aid (need based). The international scholarship is processed by admission department and the 20k Liberal Arts scholarship is what you received."
How is this possible? If you go and check their website: http://apply.emory.edu/apply/international.php
under the section titled Financial Assitance for International Students, they clearly state: "Emory University is committed to enrolling a talented first year class with representation from all corners of the globe. In accordance with this philosophy, Emory University offers need-based financial aid awards to a select group of international students each year. "
Do any of you guys have this problem? (international students seeking aid).
What should I do?
