What is my estimated cost of attendance?
Estimated Annual Cost
The adjusted current University estimate of the cost of attendance, including tuition, fees, and living expenses for the academic year, varies based on degree program.
Work-study opportunities for international students are limited. Most grants or scholarships are limited to U.S. students, and some visas include restrictions on the type of work you can do in the U.S.
Are there any financial aid and scholarship opportunities available to international students?
Yes, although the opportunities are limited. More information is available on our Financial Aid and Scholarships page.
