Students should submit the CSS Profile. Richmond’s CSS code is 5569.

Richmond is need-aware when reviewing admission applications from non-U.S. citizens. If you are admitted, we will meet 100% of demonstrated eligibility for all admitted students. The average financial aid award (need-based, merit, etc.) to international students in 2014-15 was $44,030.

International students who do not receive financial aid their first year will generally not be assisted in following years, unless funds permit.
