In this section, we list more than 700 examples of high-quality and/or affordable U.S. schools’ (an-academic-year or 9-month) cost estimates for international students. Please note that there may be additional hidden costs that are not included on a college’s admission documents (known as the I-20 form) or its website.
The schools we selected are
- with good or top rankings,
- state supported with affordable costs of attendance, or
- with high RoI (Return on Investment) rates.
College rankings used in this section were obtained from schools’ websites. Please remember that many top schools avoid listing their academic rankings. In this case, we get data from CollegeScoreboard.ed.gov and evaluate the schools.
We also provide college’s location’s ranking based on WalletHub.com’s “2016 Best College Towns & Cities.” In all, 415 college towns and cities are ranked. The ranking methodology of WalletHub’s Best College Towns & Cities uses combined factors such as the academic environment, lifestyles, cost of living, and job opportunities for students.
