According to this article in Forbes magazine "Foreign students are important to America because they bring in some **nine billion dollars** to the U.S. economy each year.
Foreign students and the pursuit of their dreams in America
However, studying at an American college as a non-resident of the United States is not always that easy for many foreign families. With the already-high price of college tuition in general, the cost can double or even triple for non-resident students. On average, according to The College Board, tuition fees for 2017-2018 at a state college was around $ 10,000 for local students, but it was $25,000 for out-of-state students and non-residents.
At Arizona State University, in-state undergraduates pay $10,370, and international undergraduates pay $28,270 in base tuition and fees for the 2016-17 academic year. Similar numbers can be found at Purdue University in Indiana: a resident of Indiana will pay $ 5000 per school year to attend that college but a non-resident will pay over $15,000 to attend Purdue. And these numbers don’t take into account the expensive housing costs at American colleges, nor the cost of health insurance. To afford tuition at a U.S. college alone, many foreign student need to apply for a student loan, or consolidate an existing one.
