Financial Aid and Scholarships

The amount that you must certify for the first year is $67,500 (total expenses for 2020-2021), which includes College fees, books, estimated health insurance, and estimated personal expenses. Keep in mind that Allegheny offers generous merit-based scholarships ranging from $5,000-$37,000. You would be required to pay the difference of the total expense minus any scholarship you receive.

After acceptance to the College, a deposit of $400 is required to hold your place in the class. This deposit is due by May 1 for the fall semester.

Scholarship Opportunities

Allegheny College has generous assistance available to international students. All international applicants will be considered for scholarships, the majority ranging between $5,000 and $35,000 per year.

All international applicants must submit the Certification of Finance Form (PDF) with their applications. Please make sure to SAVE the file to ensure that your progress is saved. Once the fill-in fields are completed you can print the file and obtain the necessary signatures. We recommend that while completing the Certification of Finances, international applicants plan on a five-percent increase in costs annually.

Need-Based Aid

Students who are U.S. citizens or are Legal Permanent Residents should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid(FAFSA) after October 1 to be considered for other forms of financial assistance.

Allegheny College is now proud to offer limited need-based aid for international students. Please keep in mind that Allegheny College is unable to meet 100% of need.


Allegheny competes in Division III of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and honors the Division III limitations. Academic and need-based financial aid are awarded without regard to students’ athletic abilities or sport participation. If interested in participating in Gator athletics please complete a recruiting questionnaire.
