Financial Planning for Study in the United States. A Guide for Students from Other Countries. Revised Edition.
College Entrance Examination Board, New York, NY.
A guide for foreign students who need information on the cost of higher education in the United States is presented. Responsibilities of foreign students in meeting these costs are addressed, along with types of financial help that may be available to them from colleges and other sources, applying for financial aid, and planning the financial aspects of their stay in this country. Specific attention is focused on: tuition and fees; different kinds of university and nonuniversity housing; awards from U.S. government sources, aid from the Institute of International Education and from six agencies serving particular nationality groups, college aid to undergraduate and graduate students, and financial aid from sources outside the United States (governments, organizations, and educational credit agencies). The addresses of educational credit agencies in 14 Latin American countries are provided. Other subjects discussed include: problems of currency restrictions, transfer of funds and using U.S. banking services, travel, books and supplies, medical and dental services, health insurance, clothing, incidental expenses, expenses for married students and their dependents, extra expenses for graduate students, and orientation and English-language programs.
