Estimated Expenses for International Students

The university estimates minimum graduate expenses for twelve months to be approximately $32,836 for Public Health and $32,572 for all other programs, but actual expenses vary greatly according to tuition, fees, and number of courses taken by a given student and whether the student is paying in-state or out-of-state tuition or has a scholarship. The university also reserves the right to make changes in tuition and fees at any time. Students on F-1 visas should have at least $4,000 in their possession upon arrival. We recommend that you bring as much of the amount in cash (Travelers Checks, etc.) as you are allowed to transfer.

NOTE: All checks drawn on foreign banks may require as long as three weeks for processing before money will be released. Please plan accordingly.

Tuition and fee payments are due before classes start.  Payment information by semester can be found at the TTUHSC Office of the Bursar website at
