How do I know if I am an international student?
You are an international student if you meet one of the following:
- You will require an F-1 visa to enter and study in the United States.
- You are not a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident status ( “green card”)
- If you are in the process of obtaining your US permanent residency you will be classified as an international student until you submit proof of your permanent residency.

We’ve provided a breakdown of cost for international students on our Undergraduate Budget Breakdown page.
