International Student Resources

International student? This is your hub for Fulton Schools resources.

International students are vital contributors to the Fulton Schools learning environment. To help you get off to a good start, we’ve gathered some information for you.

Scholarships and financial aid

As an international student your primary financial aid options include scholarships and private education loans to supplement your own personal funds for the cost of your education.


The Fulton Schools and ASU have available scholarships, and many can be awarded to international students. To learn more, visit the Fulton Schools Scholarships website and the ASU Scholarships website.

Financial aid options

To be considered for private education loans through a bank or other lender, individuals must apply for the loan with a creditworthy co-applicant (co-signer) who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident. An international student who is able to apply with a U.S. co-applicant can request up to approximately $40,000 through an alternative education loan.

CPT/OPT internships

As an international student with an F-1 Visa, it is very important to know about Curricular Practical Training (CPT) and Optional Practical Training (OPT).

Through CPT and OPT internships, you may be authorized for off-campus work experiences in your chosen field.
