There are two types of universities in United States: public (state-funded) and private. International students’ tuition fees at state schools are generally based on nonresident costs and are usually less expensive than those at private universities and colleges. It’s important to note that the cost of a program in a U.S. higher education institution does not necessarily affect its quality.
Tuition fees vary widely, depending on the field of study, institution, and degree level of the program. It can vary from as low as $ 9,000 USD per year for state universities to as much as $ 40,000 USD per year for some private universities. According to student support organization College Board, an average estimated full-time undergraduate tuition fees for 2015/2016 at state colleges are $9,410 USD for state residents and $23,893 USD for everyone else.
