During the summer term, all students pay in-state tuition rates, so the cost is comparably low. Full-time tuition remains the same from 12 to 18 hours. International students are required to register for a minimum of 12 credit hours each semester, but may take up to 18 at the same tuition cost. All international students are required to pay a one-time International Orientation Fee of $150 in their first semester of attendance. Please note that above costs are estimates. Personal expenses such as travel, clothing, entertainment, or automobiles are additional expenses not figured into this estimate. All international students are required to have adequate medical insurance.
To provide a foundation for academic success, USU requires all undergraduate international students to demonstrate a high level of English language proficiency. The English language proficiency may be demonstrated by meeting one of the following. Students must ask the testing agency to send official exam scores to Utah State University (USU).
- TOEFL* internet-based (iBT) exam score of at least 71. The institution school code for USU is 4857.
- IELTS* overall band score of at least 6.0 with minimum of 5.0 on each subscale.

** The IELI placement exam is offered at the beginning of fall, spring, and summer semesters.
Intensive English Programs
Students who do not demonstrate the required English proficiency scores, but are academically qualified, may be considered for admission to the Intensive English Language Institute (IELI) on the Logan campus. If admitted, students complete required English language courses before beginning their academic coursework.
Undergraduate students who believe they demonstrate English language proficiency should complete the English Language Proficiency Appeal form.
Applicants from Australia, Canada (except Quebec Province), New Zealand, United Kingdom, and the United States whose first language is English are exempt from this requirement. Utah State University reserves the right to require proof of English language proficiency from any applicant regardless of their citizenship, if deemed necessary by a university official.
Students are automatically enrolled in the university health insurance program. If you choose to purchase health insurance on your own it must meet university health insurance standards and you are responsible to complete the waiver process.
Transfer credit is often available to students with previous university level study. If a student brings an official English-translated copy of their transcript, it may be mailed to one of several companies within the U.S. that evaluate international credits. These companies charge a fee for this service. When the evaluation is returned to USU Eastern, our records office will determine which credits may be used at USU Eastern. Students transferring credit from within the U.S. can have their transcript evaluated immediately. Additional information may be required for departmental review.
Upon acceptance for admission to USU Eastern, a student will receive an official letter of acceptance and a Certificate of Eligibility Form I-20 from the college. Students must take the form to the nearest United States Embassy or Consulate to secure a visa. Students also will be required to present supporting documents demonstrating their ability to pay all of their expenses for at least their first year of study in the U.S.
