Expenses, Tuition Fee & Living Costs in USA

US Universities fall under two major categories: public (state supported), and private (independent) institutions. International students’ tuition expenses at state schools are based on nonresident costs, which are still usually less expensive than those of private universities.

 

It’s important to note that the cost of a program in a US school does not necessarily affect its quality. A brief idea can be got from the following table:

 

 

University Type

Average Tuition Fees
(annual in U.S. Dollars)

Private Institutions (High Cost)

$ 35,000

Private Institutions (Low Cost)

$ 18,000

State Institutions (High Cost)

$ 25,000

State Institutions (Low Cost)

$ 12,000

 

The tuition fee is different for different universities and varies widely with courses. It can vary from as low as $ 10000 a year for state universities to as much as $ 35000 per annum for some private universities. For more specific details, please contact the universities.


Living Expenses

The approximate annual living expenses are about $10,000, which includes accommodation as well as other daily expenses. However, the expenses are different for different people depending on the lifestyles and this is just a rough idea. The main expenses can be split up as:

 

Rent

$ 400 per month
(you can live alone with that amount in a place like Auburn or share an apartment with 6 people in NY)

Groceries

$ 100 per month

Utilities

$ 100 per month

Phone

$ 100 per month

Sundry

$ 200 per month

 


So, about $1000 per month is a good estimation.  Most people can survive with $700-$1000 a month. The key here is to share apartments/houses so that you save on the utilities, fixed charge portion of phone and to some extent on groceries.
