Memo for International Students
This document highlights portions of the Financial Aid Application packet to which international students should pay close attention.
If you are a veteran, or the dependent of a veteran, and plan to receive veterans' benefits to help pay your educational expenses, please review our Military Benefits and Institutional Aid Policy so that you will understand how your veterans' benefits will interact with Messiah College institutional financial aid programs. In some cases, Messiah College institutional financial aid will need to be reduced to allow your veterans' benefits to fit into your institutional financial aid package. After reviewing the policy, please complete the Veterans' Benefits Reporting Form and return it to our office.
Students who are eligible to apply for benefits under the Yellow Ribbon Program should complete the Yellow Ribbon application. Yellow Ribbon applicants should read and understand the Messiah College Policies and Procedures for the Yellow Ribbon Program before applying for Yellow Ribbon Program benefits.

The purpose of this form is to collect information from you about any non-institutional/private scholarships you will be receiving. This means scholarships that are not from state, federal, or Messiah College sources.
