Tuition & Fees

If you are an international student who is planning to study at Boston University’s Metropolitan College (MET) on an F-1 visa, you will need to maintain full-time status (at least 12 credits). Note that students studying online do not need to maintain full-time status. Additional charges apply to all students enrolled in more than 18 credits.

Estimated Cost of Study

International students are required by the University to demonstrate that they are able to fund all tuition, fees, books, and living expenses throughout the duration of their studies. To do this, each student or sponsor (person funding the student’s education) must submit financial documentation in the form of an official letter or statement from a bank or financial institution. The document must show the availability of funds to cover the estimated total cost corresponding to the program of study.
