Total Estimated Expenses for Full-time Study
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) require international students to submit proof of financial support to receive an F-1 visa for study in the United States. Below is a list of estimated costs of tuition and fees, living expenses, textbooks, and personal expenses for each session. All costs are approximate and subject to change. You must provide a bank statement or letter from a financial institution with these minimum amounts as part of the I-20 request process. For dependents (spouse or child under 21 years old), add $500 per month per person.
