If you’re an international student, you face several steps to going to college in the United States. There a few things you’ll need to consider when planning to study in a college in the United States.
Most international students take the SAT and the TOEFL, if English is not your first language. You can register for both online and sign up to take the tests in an overseas test center near your home.
Unlike some other countries, a college education in the United States isn’t financed by the government—you’ll have to pay for it on your own. The amount varies, but most U. S. private colleges charge about $15,000 to $40,000 per year for a four-year degree program. Most financial aid in the States is only for citizens, including federal financial aid.
The school you apply to may have a few scholarships available for international students. This is always the best place to start. In addition, you may be able to get funding for school from your local government or other private organizations in your country.
You will also need a student visa and health insurance you can purchase through your school.
