US Tuition Fees
Actually, tuitions are so high that most students have to contract a loan to pay for their studies. Nowadays, rising student debt is becoming a real social and economic issue in the States. Even President Barack Obama has recently stated: “I'm the president of the United States. We [Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama] only finished paying off our student loans off about eight years ago. That wasn't that long ago. And that wasn't easy--especially because when we had our daughters, we're supposed to be saving up for their college educations, and we're still paying off our college educations”.
So here are the answers to some questions you may have
What is tuition? How is it used by the colleges?
Tuition refers to a fee that student have to pay to colleges in the United States. Tuition payments are charged by educational institutions to assist with funding of staff and faculty, course offerings, lab equipment, computer systems, libraries, facility upkeep and to provide a comfortable student learning experience.
How does it work for international students?
US college tuition fees, no matter if the school is private, in-state, or out-state, are the same for domestic and international students.
The difference comes from their eligibilities for financial aid. Due to the considerable cost of tuition fees in the United States, the US government has set up a system of grants to help students pay for college tuition fees, based on one’s family’s financial situation . However, this only applies to US citizens, and the requirements are a bit different for international students.
Common requirements for international students to be eligible for in-state tuition fees:
– Attended and graduated from high school in the state
– Resided with parents or guardians while attending high school in the state
– Will file an application for permanent residency as soon as possible
Those on temporary study visas do not qualify and have to pay the full amount
Here is an example of the difference in costs between a domestic student and an international student with a temporary study visa
