The Total Figure represents the amount of funds needed on a bank statement or an Affidavit of Support in order to receive a Form I-20. A Form I-20 is the document required to obtain an F-1 student visa. Although we require students to show the requisite funds for one year, please have those funds available for the duration of your studies. Occasionally, US consular officials have asked students to show additional forms of funding to support their visa application. 

Students in English Language Programs are on a different tuition scheme. Contact the Intensive English Language Institute for specific information. Please note that the costs suggested for living expenses are estimated. They can be increased or decreased since they are highly correlated to household choice and lifestyle circumstances.

The U.S. government requires all international students to have health and repatriation insurance. We provide a reasonably priced policy that meets this requirement. The fees are included in the above cost estimate.

Your tuition and fees entitle you to utilize all of the campus services. They include free admission to varsity sports, use of state of the art computer labs and libraries, outstanding wellness center, shuttle service to off-campus locations, and various student trips. There are  other amenities and services provided by our department.

Graduate students should contact the Graduate School directly for information on scholarships and amenities related to graduate students.
