Step 3: If you are an international student then you would be required to submit the affidavit of financial support , showing that you have the money required for your studies in USA. Most public universities would cost you between 30000$-40000$ per year and private universities would cost you 40000$-50000$ per year. This amount is for international students including tuition fees and living expenses.However some public universities may cost you more than 40000$ per year and some private universities can cost you more than 50000$ per year. Of course you can reduce that expenses by doing side jobs or applying for teaching assistanceship and scholarships.
