*** The estimated cost listed does not take into consideration the Chancellor’s Merit Award, if awarded. The actual billed cost depends on the value of any awards and the number of credit hours taken each semester. The Chancellor’s Merit Award is awarded to five international graduate students every year based on the student’s academic records. Awards are determined by a thorough review of the information provided on the International Student Application and the required supporting documents. The maximum annual value for the award is approximately $6,971.40 (for up to four semesters).

As with any college or university, there will be additional unbilled costs: supplies, entertainment, clothing, transportation, vacations, etc. The total amount for unbilled costs will vary depending on each student’s lifestyle.

Students can expect that the cost of attendance will increase by 2–3% each year of enrollment.
