In order to apply for a student visa, you must have an I-20. Before an I-20 form can be issued, satisfactory arrangements must be made for payment of tuition and fees. Every accepted international student will receive a $9,000/year International Student Diversity Grant.
International applicants should be prepared to meet the full cost of attendance - tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies, and personal expenses for the calendar year - from personal or family resources or from funds applied by their government or other outside sources.
For the 2012-2013 academic year, the total cost (tuition, fees, room, and board ) is $41,190. This includes $110 for new student orientation.
