Here is info on how much it costs to study in USA and where to find most affordable universities

For the purpose of this article, I will cover the cost of studying in some of the most affordable 4-year state universities here in USA.

BY BOB MWITI

The challenge of finding the most affordable schools, the challenge of passing entrance exams, the challenge of cracking the student visa interview among others! It took me 8 good years to finally make it here in the USA. It is a journey that taught me a lot of lessons that I am always willing to share and help those who are out there wishing to study overseas.

One of the major challenges that a lot of people face is knowing how much it would cost them to study overseas. For those wishing to study in the US, this article is for you. I will try to give you a detailed breakdown of all the expenses that you will most likely incur on your journey to USA as an international student. So grab a pen and a sheet of paper and note this information as it will give you a good understanding of what you need to know as far as finances of studying in USA are concerned.

If you are coming to study in the US, you may either come to a community college for a 2-year associate degree, or to a 4 year college for your Bachelor’s, graduate or post graduate degree.

For the purpose of this article, I will cover the cost of studying in some of the most affordable 4-year state universities here in USA. I will take an average of the following 3 universities.

  1. Indiana University Of Pennsylvania (I went to this school for my master’s) costs 19,000/year for tuition & fees while books & other miscellaneous costs are $4,000
  2. University of North Georgia costs $15,000/year for tuition & fees while books & other costs miscellaneous are $,3,500
  3. Midwestern State University costs $11,000/year for tuition & fees while books & other miscellaneous costs are $3,000

So, the average cost of these 3 schools is about $16,500 per year. That covers the tuition, fees, books and other miscellaneous costs.

Before you come to study, you should be prepared to incur relocation costs prior to you landing in the US. These are (US Visa + Passport) about $250, school application fees about $30, entrance exams (eg GMAT, GRE, SAT,ACT) $250, TOEFL (Not all schools will ask for this if you are from an English speaking country ) $200. TOEFL and Entrance exams self-study materials (assuming you study on your own) $200, Immunizations $200, Air ticket$1200(I am assuming you are travelling from Nairobi, Kenya like I did!). Total cost of all these relocation expenses is about $2,300.

Once you are here, you will need to take care of your other living expenses. These are: Shared student accommodation off-campus $500/month which is $6,000/year. Utilities can cost you about $100 (i.e. water, electricity and internet & basic prepaid phone) so that would be about $1,200 per year. Transport could cost you about $50 per month which would equate to $600 per year.

Food would be about $100 per month, which would be $1,200 per year. Student health insurance (although optional) could set you back about $25 per month which would total about $300 per year. Total cost of these living expenses would be about $9,300 per year.

From the above, you will require a total of about $28,100(16,500+2,300+9,300) for the first year of your studies in the US.

In order for you to be issued with an I-20 (The official immigration document that you take to the Embassy in order to get visa issuance), you will need to show your school, your ability to pay  about ,$26,000 (excluding the relocation expenses).Schools here require you to show funds to cover your full tuition and living expenses for one year.

So, as you can see, studying in the US is expensive. These numbers that I picked are from very modest state universities. There are some universities that charge over $50,000 per year, especially if you are enrolled in those Ivy league schools.

So, for those with the dream of studying in the US, these numbers can be very discouraging. My advice is that, do not be discouraged because there is a way that you can fund most of it. You can get a Job on campus, you can find scholarships, you can get (secured or unsecured) international student loans or you can get graduate assistantship grants (if coming for graduate/post graduate programs).

However, the bottom line is, if you are thinking of coming to study in the US, at least you need some money for your relocation expenses, regardless of whether you have a scholarship, loans or not.

Two Kenyan men deported in a $170,000 chattered jet

Published

on

Migration officials and the federal police last week came under fire after a feature on German ARD’s magazine “report München” revealed that $170,000 (€137,000) was spent to charter a private jet to deport two Kenyan men.

Early Thursday morning on 5th September, a Bavarian police car drove into the Berlin-Schönefeld airport carrying 48 year old Kenyan man ready for deportation. On board of the chartered “Bombardier Global Express” private jet, was another Kenyan man also being deported by the state of Baden-Wurttemberg after his asylum application was rejected with no possibility of appealing the decision.

The case has caused outrage, not because of the deportation but because of the cost of it. However, Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria, the States that chartered the private jet have brought forward several excuses to explain the extravagance.

To begin with, a commercial flight was out of question. Apparently, the two had been issued with emergency travel documents by the Kenyan government that were only valid for 3 days. A common practice with home countries that do not want to take back the returnees, probably a tactic to buy time for the affected, an expert explained on report München. However, finding seats for the two and the 10+ escort team plus the risk of the flight being grounded if the two men resisted the exercise, ruled out a commercial flight in such a short time period.

Secondly, the officials claimed the two had been labelled dangerous delinquents. However no evidence was put forward to support the claim in regards to the man from Baden-Württemberg. For the 48 year old man from Bavaria, receipts abound.

The 48 year old that has been living in Germany for the past 20 years has had several encounters with the police in Bavaria and after his last encounter, the Bavarian State Office for Asylum and Repatriation (Bayerische Landesamt für Asyl und Rückführung) ordered for immediate deportation after serving his sentence. Among the charges levelled against him included, assault, theft, insult and obstruction of law enforcement. In the last incident where he was charged with attempted murder, he ruffled up the victim so badly that the victim has had to undergo three surgeries and still lost 80% of his eye sight.

A further excuse given was that the costs were in the normal range of chartering a private jet. According to the federal police, they have no influence on the price. Once they receive a deportation request from a federal state, the cheapest price is determined by a quick check with suitable charter companies and the contract awarded – said a spokesman for the Federal Police Headquarters in Potsdam

Furthermore, the costs would be split between the two states.

The uneventful exercise took less than 36 hours to deliver the two men in Nairobi and have the team return to Berlin.

However, additional costs that might have been missed included the cost of the 14 person team that was escorted the two men in the “fan fair”. In addition to the flight crew, there were nine federal police officers, a medical doctor, a paramedic and a a representative of the border protection agency Frontex – as neutral observer to document whether or not the officials followed proper deportation procedure.
