Please review the budgets above for all costs associated with attending Grand View as an international student. These budgets include the amount needed to be covered by Grand View grants and scholarships, personal and family resources for the Certification of Finance Form.
The remaining cost after scholarships must be paid by August 1 for the fall semester and December 1 for the spring semester.
If your scholarship is from sources inside the United States, the portion of your scholarship used for room and board as well as for other non-educational expenses is taxed at a flat rate of 14 percent. Individuals from countries with which the U.S. has negotiated tax treaties may be able to reduce the amount of tax on their scholarships. The portion of your U.S. scholarship granted and used to pay tuition and required fees is exempt from U.S. tax. You will receive Form 1042-S from your sponsor to report the taxable portion of your scholarship.
If you are a nonresident for tax purposes and your scholarship is provided by an entity outside the U.S. you will not pay taxes to the U.S. on any part of your scholarship. Check with your sponsor to determine if you have any U.S. tax obligations on your scholarship.
The U.S. has negotiated tax treaties with many countries of the world. If you are a resident of a country that has a tax treaty with the U.S., you may be eligible to reduce or eliminate U.S. tax on your income. If you are eligible for a tax treaty benefit, you must file Form 8233 with your employer every year. More tax treaty information can be found here.
