Low Tuition Universities in the USA

low tuition universities in the US2Many students shy away from studying in the US because they feel that tuition fees in universities over there are very expensive. Well this is not true as there are low tuition universities in the US as well. The private universities may be expensive, but the public ones are quite affordable. I have decided to publish a comprehensive list of universities in the US with low tuition fees, but before I do that let’s briefly look at the cost of living in the US for a student, admission requirements and how to apply for visa.

Cost of living in the US

Cost of living in the US varies from city to city. Places like Washington, California and area around New York usually have high living cost. If you spend moderately as a student you should expect to live on $500 to $1000 a month. This amount will cover the cost of food, clothes, accommodation, transportation and other expenses apart from tuition fees.

Admission requirements for study in the US

  • To study in the US, students whose first language is not English must show proof of proficiency in the language. Most universities in the US accept TOEFL, IELTS or PTE.
  • For admission into a masters program, universities in the US require.
  • undergraduate (BS or bachelor’s degree ) GPA to be 3/4 (US system). It is equivalent to 80/100,12/20*(China) and 1st division ,65%*(For most Indian Universities)
  • Application fees of $20 to $100 may be charged by the universities.

How to apply for visa

There are several steps to apply for a US student visa. The order of these steps and how you complete them may vary at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where you apply.

  • Complete the online visa application form: You must complete the online DS – 160 form. Click this link to access the form. https://ceac.state.gov/genniv/
  • Schedule an interview: You must schedule an appointment for your visa interview in the country where you live.
  • Prepare for your interview; Pay the non-refundable visa application fee, if you are required to pay it before your interview. When your visa is approved, you may also pay a visa issuance fee.
  • Gather required documentation; Ensure that you gather all the required documents before your visa interview. The documents include the following;
  1. Passport valid for travel to the United States
  2. Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-160 confirmation page
  3. Application fee payment receipt, if you are required to pay before your interview.
  4. Photo – You will upload your photo while completing the online Form DS-160
  5. Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (F-1) Student Status-For Academic and Language Students, Form I-20 or Certificate of Eligibility for Nonimmigrant (M-1) Student Status for Vocational Students, Form I-20

Work and study in the US

You can work up to 20 hours per week while school is in session; if school is not in session, the rules may differ. Ensure that you maintain valid F-1 status while you are employed on campus. If you lose your F-1 status, you will be unable to continue on-campus employment.

  1. i am very thankful for this information that you have provided.

    i would like to ask if you could assist with schools that can give scholarships though these listed schools have low tuition.

    moreover, can i be updated with schools that require a low application fee, since we will have to at least apply for about 4 or more schools?

    1. Hi Ken, all universities and colleges in the USA have financial aid for students. For the application fee, I can’t tell the ones that are low. What I will advice you do is check the university’s website and there you will see the application fees they charge.
      Thanks
