Cost to Attend

In addition to standard tuition and fees and room and board, international students should plan on the following expenses: 

Student Deposit* $1500 Deposit (must be received prior to being issued an I-20)
Sevis Fee** $350 one-time fee
Tuition & Fees  $7,000 (This number is based on 16 credit hours a semester/32 a year at the international student rate.)

*The $1500 Student Deposit, includes a one-time, non-refundable application fee of $150. The remainder of the deposit ($1350) will be split by semester and applied to the student's bill. 

**The Sevis fee is independent of CCC costs. This fee must be paid in order to obtain a Visa.

***This is only an estimation and may vary by student. This does not take into account any deposit credit, scholarships, or waivers.

Canadian citizens DO NOT need visas to study in the U.S. However, an I-20 (or DS-2019) Certificate of Eligibility issued by the college is required. At the time you receive the I-20 (or DS-2019), you will be registered with SEVIS, the student tracking system. You will be assigned a SEVIS number, and be required to pay a registration fee (see below).

When you cross the border to study you will need to present the following at the port of entry:

  • Proof of identity and citizenship (such as a Canadian passport).
  • The original I-20 (or DS-2019) signed by the college official and the student.
  • Proof that you have paid your SEVIS fee.
  • Proof that you have the funds to pay for college

SpanTran is a NACES-member company that has created a custom application for students to get their non-U.S. transcripts evaluated for possible transfer credit at a discounted rate. You can find that application by clicking here.

If you only need a translation of your documents, and not an evaluation, you can see this application instead: SpanTran - Translation Request.
