Does kellogg provide atleast upto 80% of COA loans to international students? If I am not wrong, international students have only one loan option (something called option B) if they don't have US based co-signer. Does Kellogg offer substential loan covering ~80% of COA with this loan?


Yes, Kellogg does provide 80% of COA loans to almost all if not to all the students (it becomes a bit difficult for students in R3 of applications). But the international students I know here at Kellogg, got close to 100% of COA. So rest assured, Kellogg understands the need of international students to get loans at competitive rates.

As for option B, yes, you are correct that this option is for people with non-US co-signors. But option B does not mean that you will not get atleast 80% of COA. If you fill out your application correctly, you should get atleast 80% of COA, if not 100%. Kellogg is aware of the fact that there are not many options for international students and they want to convert every single admit to a confirmed admit. Wait for you to get your official admit email detailing what you need to do for the next steps. See if you can get contact details of the person in the financial aid. Refer to (in the meantime) http://www.northwestern.edu/sfs/financi ... index.html

If you still are not sure of how to proceed with this financial aid thing, PM me mid Jan and I will provide you the details of the financial aid coordinator.

Additionally, use the link (http://gmatclub.com/forum/calling-all-a ... l#p1627585) from last year's admit class at Kellogg to guide you on what to expect.

Hope this helps.

Was going through funding options. Doesn't look like a lot of scholarships for non-US citizens. Or is that just me?

Also does anyone know what the outcome generally is after filing the financial aid application? Are scholarships given or just loans? If scholarships is there an idea of what that looks like?

Posted from my mobile device


Unfortunately, scholarships for international students are scarce. Most of the time, international students will be given loans (usually at competitive rates) rather than scholarships. Financial aid application will let you be selected for the loans.

As for scholarships, if you did not receive it with the admit letter, then unfortunately, you did not receive it.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Summary of my interactions with finaid team and other students is as follows. You all are welcome to add-
1. Kellogg offers NU student loans for international students (Option A- US cosigner, Option B- International co-signer). With 0.5% difference in interest rates
2. Kellogg finaid team will assess each case and offer the need based loan
3. Kellogg confirmed that they typically try to complete this process before we have to make the non-refundable deposit. Good!
4. Maximum loan one can get is = COA - scholarship - family funding - other loans
5. I found in some of the older threads that students received the scholarships too as a part of financial rewards.

Did anyone find any other loan options? or any additional useful information? Also anyone received full 80% offer from Prodigy?

Great post, thanks very much for the info

I have just sent my FinAid application, specifying the NU Loan for international students as a lender
I really hope this process is simple and that I get full COA, as if not I would be extremely complicated to attend

Best regards
