Although submitting an SAT score is not required for your application, it is necessary for us if you want to qualify for the maximum scholarships available. When applying, you will also need to submit an official bank statement showing a value of at least $26,900 U.S. dollars (Total cost minus smallest financial award package).

Unbilled Expenses

When you enroll in a college or university, you can expect to have two kinds of expenses: Billed and Unbilled. Billed expenses are assigned to you by the institution. Examples are tuition and meal plans. A complete list is included above.

Enrolled students will also need to budget for significant living expenses that will come from other sources. These are called "unbilled expenses" and include the following:

  • Books (approximately $900/year)
  • Personal Expenses (approximately $1,500/year)
