Estimated Costs 2022-2023
ISSO logo

The estimated costs are based on an academic year (August-May), unless otherwise listed, and for planning purposes only. Official bills for tuition and fees will be presented after registration. The University reserves the right to change any of the below expenses without prior notification. 
Note: 
  • Tuition = full-time enrollment for one year
    • Any tuition scholarship or remission/discount percentage or amount should be subtracted from the Tuition amount only - not the Total Cost for your program.
  • Fees = university and applicable program fees
  • Other = books and other miscellaneous fees
Financial Documentation Requirements:
  • The personal bank statement, signed bank letter, or certificate of deposit must be less than six months old.
  • Documentation must be on institution letterhead, signed by a bank official, have a bank stamp and dated within the past 6 months. We cannot accept a bank statement from a business.
  • If someone is funding your education, we need a personal bank statement from his/her account. The statement does not have to specify the total amount in the account, just the amount equal to or in excess of the total financial certification.
    • A signed Affidavit of Support is also required if the documentation shows funds are not in an account in your name.
  • If you have any dependents, you must submit documentation to show funding for your academic program and dependent costs.
