- Housing and Meals: Costs vary; the figure above is the cost for a double room in Theophilus Tower or Wallace Residence Center and The Vandal meal plan. Non-traditional students, students who live with their parents, or students who have children living with them have different housing and meal costs. Other than these situations, a student's living arrangement does not affect the cost of attendance used by Student Financial Aid Services.
- Book and Supplies: Expenses are estimated costs for a full-time student for one academic year.
- Required Insurance: International students enrolled in 1 or more credits are automatically enrolled in the University of Idaho Student Health Insurance Program (SHIP). International Students with an insurance policy provided by their sponsoring government as part of their educational program can submit their policy information for verification. If this policy meets U of I’s minimum insurance requirements, the student will not be enrolled in SHIP. Additional information available at www.uidaho.edu/international-student-insurance.
- Personal Expenses: Includes items such as clothing, special course fees, federal loan fees, personal care products, laundry, etc. These items are considered indirect costs and will vary for each student.
Certificate of Financial Responsibility
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations require that every international student verify the availability of funds to pay for educational and living expenses before an I-20 or DS-2019 form to obtain a visa to enter the U.S. can be issued. Complete and return this form via email to the appropriate Admissions Office regardless of your source(s) of funding.
Scholarships and Graduate Funding Opportunities
U of I offers two annual, renewable scholarships for international students for up to four years of study that are worth 50% tuition at the time of initial matriculation.
Assistantships usually require students to work as teaching assistants, research assistants and assistants to professors within their department or field of study.
