There are two different types of admissions: need-blind admissions and need-aware admissions. As they can differ in the admissions process and scholarship opportunities, it is important for those planning to study abroad to understand the admissions policies.
University/college with 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝-𝐛𝐥𝐢𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐝𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 admits students no matter what financial background they have.
𝐍𝐞𝐞𝐝-𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐝𝐦𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬, however, makes admissions decisions with consideration of the applicant's ability to pay their tuition fee.
Most well-known liberal arts universities in the United States, such as Harvard University, Princeton University, and Stanford University use a need-blind admissions policy to accept students to their institutions. Like these universities, Parami University also has adopted this admission policy to admit students to university.
Most schools with need-blind admissions offer a need-based scholarship to students with financial needs. The selection criteria for need-based scholarship emphasize the student's financial needs and their demonstration of academic merits and commitment to positive civic engagement.
Applicants are usually required to show evidence of their financial needs. Some universities or organizations require students to provide parents' tax returns or meet with the family to agree on providing financial aid for a particular student.
