Tuition Fees for International Students in the United States

The United States higher education system is not subsidized by the federal government which is why tuition fees remain notoriously high in the United States, even for American citizens. Students should take this into account before applying for a degree program in the United States. Although there are scholarships and stipends available, these are often granted to low-income students and students with high academic achievement. Fortunately, there are many scholarships dedicated to just international students interested in studying in the United States. Otherwise, expect to pay the full amount with loans or your own savings.

According to a 2018 publication by the U.S. Department of Education, as of the 2015-16 academic year, the annual price for undergraduate tuition including fees, room, and board was estimated to be $16,757 at public institutions and $43,065 for private institutions. These numbers reflect a 34% increase from the 2005-06 academic year. Although many funding options are exclusively available to American students, many universities invest in international students in order to increase the diversity on their campuses and attract top talent from around the world.
