Studying at USA can be very expensive. US universities charge some of the highest tuition fees in the world, especially those prestigious colleges with strong global reputations. One form of financial aid which is particularly distinctive to the US is associated with “Need-Blind Admission”. This term means an institution has an official policy of not considering applicants’ financial resources when deciding whether to offer them a place. This policy may be extended to all students, including internationals, or it may be limited to US nationals only.
