Physical Therapy Program - International Students

Below you will see an overview of the financial aid application process for incoming international Physical Therapy students.

Deadline

Return all completed application materials by March 8, 2019.

Importance of meeting deadlines

Meeting the financial aid application deadlines listed above ensures that students will receive their financial aid award notice, can complete all required loan documentation, and have their funds disburse by the first day of classes. Students who may be admitted after the application deadline are still eligible to apply for and receive financial aid, but they must submit their financial aid application materials within two weeks of when they were admitted.

Students who apply for financial aid after the deadline cannot be guaranteed that financial aid funds will disburse by the first day of class. Applications received after the deadline will be processed in the order in which they were received.

Financial aid applications may not be processed once a term has ended (in other words, students may not be eligible to receive funds for the Fall term if they apply for those funds during the Winter term).

Application Steps

  1. Complete the University Aid Application
  2. Accept or decline financial aid award

1. Complete the University Aid Application

Deadline: March 8, 2019

  • Students who do not yet have access to CAESAR may download and complete the 2019-20 University Aid Application. Electronic signatures will not be accepted on the University Aid Application. Please print out the application, complete and sign it, then return it to our office via fax or scan and email.
  • The University Aid Application asks for your Student ID. If you have not yet received your Student ID, please feel free to leave that line blank. This will not impact the processing of your financial aid application.
  • If you have access to CAESAR at the time of your application, you may be able to complete this document online via your To-Do list. Your To-Do List can be reviewed in CAESAR through either the "Tasks" tile on the homepage, or by clicking on the "Financial Aid" tile from the homepage and then selecting "To-Do List" from the left-hand navigation.

2. Accept or decline financial aid award

Deadline: As soon as possible after you receive award notice

  • After you submit all application materials, Northwestern will determine your financial aid eligibility and aid package. Learn more about how aid is determined.
  • Next, our office will begin sending financial award decision emails to your Northwestern email address on a rolling basis beginning April 1, or once we have received the official tuition rates for the upcoming academic year (typically March/April), whichever is later. Your financial aid package may include an offer of private international student loans.
  • Student must accept or decline their award package via CAESAR. Learn more about the steps to accept or decline.
