Your international tuition at A-State is based on a variety of factors including how many hours you are enrolled in and which college houses your selected major. In addition to tuition and fees, international students have additional costs that include health screenings and insurance.

Calculating Your Tuition

To calculate your tuition, multiply the tuition per credit hour rate and the required hourly fees by the number of hours you are taking for a given semester. If you meet any of the required term fee or additional fees criteria, add them to your total number.
