International students will need to plan for direct expenses billed by the University, as well as indirect expenses such as visa fees, travel, supplies and personal items, which vary for individual students.

*Health insurance is mandatory, but there may be alternatives to the University health plan.
International students are automatically considered for merit scholarships using the credentials they submit with their application. Current awards range from $12,000 to $25,000 per year and are presented with the offer of admission.
Merit scholarships can be higher but do not exceed tuition, so a contribution is expected each year from family resources, personal funds, sponsorships and outside scholarships to cover the cost of attendance.
Need-based financial aid is only available to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, and requires the filing of the FAFSA form.
