Estimated Expenses for Newly Admitted Undergraduate Students

Before International Student Services (ISS) can issue your I-20/DS-2019, you must show enough funding to cover the cost of tuition and fees, living expenses and the mandatory UA-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan.

The amounts listed below are only an estimate of what you will actually pay, based on funding requirements for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Tuition and fees includes the $100 International Student Fee charged to F-1 and J-1 students each semester. The actual cost of tuition and fees may change, depending on your academic program, year, and special course fees.

If you are not required to pay the enrollment fee, add $125 for the orientation fee in your first semester. If you will begin at the UA as a first-year undergraduate student, add $10/semester for the freshman fee. To find out how much to add for program fees, use the Bursar’s Office Tuition and Fees Calculator.  If you need to know the funding amount for less than one year send us an email.
