Expenses, Tuition Fee & Living Costs

US Universities fall under two major categories:

  • Public (state supported), and
  • Private (independent) institutions.
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
