Important Note

The above figures for international students are averages and are subject to change.  Tuition estimates are based on full-time enrollment in 9 credit hours per semester.  Students who enroll in more than 9 hours will pay proportionately more tuition ($637.70 per credit hour).  Summer enrollment is optional, however, if the Summer Session is the student's initial semester of enrollment.  Summer Session enrollment is required during the student's first year.  International students are required to have medical insurance.  If students do not have medical insurance when they arrive, medical insurance may be purchased at the University.  If the Summer Session is the student's initial semester of enrollment, there is an additional fee of $213 for medical insurance.  There is also an additional fee of US$15 per credit hour for engineering classes.  The College of Business also charges an additional Technology fee of $15 per credit hour for business classes.  Students should bring extra money for personal expenses (such as movies, museums, shopping, etc).  Actual housing expenditures depend on: 1) whether or not the student lives on campus, and at which residence hall if the student does choose to live on campus, 2) whether or not the student has a roommate, and 3) the student's meal plan, if living on campus.  Students are required to have a tuberculin skin test upon arrival.

* Students who remain in the United States during the summer but do not enroll in classes may subtract this amount from the total amount needed.  Summer tuition and fees are based upon a six-hour load.
