Which US schools offer aid to international students on transfer?? please help!!.

<p>Hello Everybody!!</p>

<p>I have a query. I need to know about universities that offer full scholarships on transfer to international student. </p>

<p>My statistic:</p>

<p>Degree Earned: Diploma in Computer Engineering (73%) Overall GPA: A
Equivalency : high school
Duration of study: 3 years
Education Board: Tribhuvan University (Central University)
IELTS: Overall 7.5 (i could have scored upto 8, due to some technical blunder in writing, I messed up) Listening:8.5 Reading 8.5 Writing 5.5 Speaking 7.5
SAT: didn't appear
Currently getting good grades in my freshmen year. (A's)</p>

<p>I have some queries:</p>

<ol>
<li><p>What are the procedures and requirements for applying as a transfer student in the next fall intake?</p></li>
<li><p>I have been taking BIO 100, Freshmen Composition.American Government..Microeconomics....Introduction to Communication....I am hopeful of getting As in almost all subjects. What are the subjects whose credit can be transferred in any university?</p></li>
<li><p>Will the grades (good) help me get the full scholarship I am seeking in your university?</p></li>
<li><p>By the time I leave my current university, I will have around 33 credits. Do you think I would still need SAT to apply for scholarships?</p></li>
<li><p>I am in rush to schedule my classes for the upcoming Spring semester, I want to take courses that can be transferred in most universities (almost all of them). </p></li>
<li><p>Which university should I consider applying, best suited for Nepalese/ international students?</p></li>
</ol>

<p>I am in desperate need of an expert advice.</p>

<p>Regards!</p>

<p>I can almost guarantee you that you are not going to get a full scholarship as a transfer student, unless you manage to be one of the dozen or so transfer students that MIT or Stanford accept each year (that number is for domestic and international students combined!). </p>

<p>Financial aid sucks for transfer students in general, and it's basically non-existant for international transfer students from foreign universities.</p>

<p>Your best bet is to finish your Bachelor's degree in your home country and then come to the US for a graduate degree. There's much more funding for international students at the graduate level than there is for undergraduates.</p>

<p>I know about a girl who got in Mount Holyoke (women college) as a transfer student with full scholarship. Her SAT was 1980 and she didn't take subjects.</p>

<p>Which university did she attend before she transferred?</p>

<p>I don't know, some university in Russia (but not Moscow State University)</p>

<p>Grinnell, Harvard, MIT, Yale, Dartmouth</p>

<p>Limited FA: WUSTL, Middlebury, Colby</p>

<p>For your kind info guys: I am currently studying in United States..as a freshmen...in an undergraduate program...Sorry I forgot to post this info...What are the requirements to qualify for big schools like Stanford...with a good financial aid????</p>

<p>Then what does "Education Board: Tribhuvan University (Central University)" mean?</p>

<p>It means that we have some specialized engineering program run by the Central University which is equivalent to HIGH SCHOOL DEGREE..... We studied three years after the 10th grade.....Was i clear about it?</p>

You probably wanna be a superstar both inside and outside of the classroom. The less selective your current university, the more you'll have to shine.</p>

<p>Majority of Colleges want International student to have SAT for merit based scholarships right? Like I said I do not have SAT. I heard you don't need an SAT on most colleges after you attended 24+ credits (two semesters). How true is that? </p>

<p>What do you advise me to do ? I have very less time to prepare for my SAT, I am not sure whether to give the test or NOT!!!!</p>

It depends on the university. The more selective, the more likely they'll want standardized tests for admission. Harvard and Stanford, for example, require SAT or ACT scores from all transfer applicants but Mount Holyoke does not. </p>

<p>I suggest that you do take the SAT or ACT (a non-native speaker myself, I personally found the ACT much easier than the SAT) to give yourself more options.</p>

There are not many colleges with merit-based scholarships for international transfer students, unless you are currently attending a community college. (In which case I would strongly encourage you to discuss your options with the transfer advisor at your community college!) The few colleges that 082349 listed all award need-based financial aid, for instance.</p>
