Tuition Costs and Ability to Pay
The exact cost of living and studying in the U.S. varies considerably from person to person and from one degree program to another. These are the current cost figures
used for purpose of issuing immigration documents.
Please be aware that the University requires all students to have medical insurance while enrolled. The University will automatically enroll any student in the University's student health insurance plan unless the student can demonstrate that they have acquired comparable coverage through another company.
Documenting Ability to Pay
Before the University can issue your immigration documents you must supply documentation showing you have the funds for the first year of study and have the reasonable expectation of being able to cover the rest of your studies. Please note that international students have a very limited ability to work in the U.S. and cannot rely on the ability to work outside the school to meet their financial needs. Available funds must show annual tuition, living expenses, and health insurance. These figures change every year. Catholic University uses the following currency conversion source when calculating whether or not the amount of money documented is sufficient: www.xe.com
NOTE: Catholic University will not issue any immigration documents unless a student can provide the required financial resources. Insufficient funding is one of the primary stressors faced by international students.
