Rarely there is any scholarships available for international students. However, the atmosphere is friendly and great.

The school is an excellent environment, fantastic people, and loving educators that know each student individually. The biggest downside is the Financial Aid office and most of the other offices don't communicate with each other, their well understaffed for an 8,000+ school, and the school loves to screw you over. They lack communication between people and departments, they won't respond to emails except the multiple spams one would have to do to get their attention. They don't help with student on info about the fafsa and requirements for it to get aid on time. They don't know very much about anything and won't help unless you yell at them, cry at them, or bring back-up to intimidate them. Plenty of students left, and many more have officially dropped out, because of the Financial Aid office because of their incompetence.
