Financial Aid

The University of Minnesota offers many loan programs, administered through the Office of Student Finance. To be considered, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). International students need a U.S. co-signer for student loans. If you have questions about loan programs, visit Financial Aid — One Stop. The University has reciprocity agreements with the states of Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the province of Manitoba, Canada.

The Carlson School and the University of Minnesota award a limited number of academic merit-based scholarships. Scholarship consideration is extremely competitive and the Master of Science in Business Analytics program will automatically consider applicants for all scholarships for which they are eligible. No special application is required for these scholarships.

International Student Loans

The University of Minnesota does not specifically offer non-US co-signed loans. Some of the options available to you include:
