Payments to Non-Resident Aliens

Scholarships

The non-qualified portion (amount that is in excess of tuition and fees) of a scholarship paid to a non-resident alien is subject to federal tax withholding and reporting. A scholarship request may be submitted to the Office of Student Financial Aid and the amount will be applied directly to the student account. After Student Accounts Services has been notified of the scholarship, the International Tax Coordinator will collect the appropriate documents from the scholarship recipient and assess the tax liability.
