International Students




An international student is one who will be attending a university in the United States without residency or citizenship, typically on an F-1 visa. International students have additional application requirements, which can be found here.  Please review the information carefully before you continue. 

Please note:

There are limited financial aid options for international students and as a general rule, if you cannot cover at least 80% of the cost through sponsorship or personal financial resources, it probably will not be possible for you to attend Multnomah

Additionally, we advise that all international students applying as residential students allow 6-8 months between the time they apply to Multnomah University and their intended first semester of studying on campus. This is to allow time for processing the proper documentation for you to apply for a visa.
