International Student SupplementThe cost of tuition is the same for both international and domestic students. For visa purposes, international candidates must be prepared to pay the total cost of attending Stern, including tuition, fees and living expenses. This total estimated cost for the first year (2015-2016) is $103,982 USD (including living expenses). Certification of this ability to fund your first year of study must be provided in the International Student Supplement on the Stern application.
The International Student Supplement must be completed in full by all non-U.S. citizens, including non-resident aliens (those holding F, J or trainee visas) and foreign government officials. U.S. Permanent Residents are not required to complete the International Student Supplement. The International Student Supplement is divided into three sections:
- Visa status: If you are currently in the U.S., list the type of visa you hold and the name of your sponsor.
- Funding: To obtain a student visa, you must demonstrate the ability to pay for your entire first year of study in the U.S. You also will be required to indicate the source(s) of funding for your second year. The funding section of the International Student Supplement helps you start preparing for the visa application process by encouraging you to plan your finances early. Even if you cannot fully support your first year, please indicate your sources of partial funding. For visa purposes, you should not include potential merit scholarships or loans as sources of funding. However, international students are considered for merit scholarships.
- Permanent Foreign Address: All universities in the U.S. must comply with the SEVIS database created by the U.S. Federal Government. All non-U.S. Citizens must provide a permanent international address. If the mailing address you provided in the Personal section of the application is a U.S. address, you must also provide a permanent, foreign address in your country of citizenship. This address cannot include a Post Office box.
