Cost of Attendance Estimates for International Students

Annual cost of attendance estimate figures represent the minimum annual estimated expenses for the current academic year, based on federal financial aid information.

An F-1 student's financial resources must equal or exceed the minimum estimated expenses for the academic program they will pursue at St. John Fisher College for at least the first year of study in order to be eligible for a Form I-20 to study at the College. These figures are only a guide to be used for calculating estimated financial expenses for one academic year. Tuition and fees are subject to change and regular annual increase.

In computing estimated expenses, students are advised to bear in mind that F-1 status permits only limited employment opportunities. The applicant should not look to on-campus employment (permitted part-time during the academic year, full-time during official break periods) as a significant means of support while pursuing a degree program.

See the Statement of Financial Support [pdf] to complete the Certificate of Finances and for financial documentation guidelines and requirements.
