Canadian Colleges That Accept Fafsa
If you’re an international student looking to study in Canada, there’s a chance that your dream school is more accessible than you think. The truth is that many Canadian colleges welcome international students and will work with them to provide financial aid. They understand that these students don’t have the same access to funding as domestic students do, so they try their best to help out with what little they can offer. That said, it’s still important for students from other countries to make sure they understand how financial aid works at their school before enrolling or committing to anything else (including scholarships).

International students can get financial aid too.
Whether you’re a US citizen or not, it’s important to understand how FAFSA works and how it can help you get financial aid.
If you’re an international student:
You will need to apply for a visa in order to study in Canada. If your parents have enough income and assets, then they may be able to provide proof of this on their own tax return. However, if they don’t have enough income or assets (or if they are unwilling), then you’ll need their written consent before filing the application. You should also provide documentation showing that there is no one else who could contribute toward your education costs like siblings or other relatives living in the same household as yourself and/or parents who live elsewhere (such as when both parents work abroad).
If you’re an international student looking to study in Canada, it can be a challenge to find financial aid. However, there are many Canadian colleges and universities that will accept FAFSA as well as other forms of financial aid. If you have any questions about whether or not your school accepts FAFSA, contact them directly for more information.
