Prosthetics-Orthotics Program - International Students

Below you will see an overview of the financial aid application process for incoming international students in the Master's in Prosthetics & Orthotics Program (MPO).

Deadline

Return all completed application materials by May 1, 2018.

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 the academic year has ended.

Application Steps

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

Deadline: May 1, 2018

  • Students with access to CAESAR can complete the University Aid Application online via their To-Do list.

  • After you submit all application materials, Northwestern will determine your financial aid eligibility and aid package.

Students who complete their financial aid application materials prior to the May 1 deadline will be sent their Financial Aid Award notices to their Northwestern email address on a rolling basis beginning in mid-April, or once we have received the official tuition rates for the upcoming academic year (typically April/May), whichever is later. Award notices will then continue to be sent out as students submit completed financial aid application materials to our office.
