Here at Green River College, our international students pay 725 U.S. dollars per month, stay with the host family, and that includes all three meals. In addition, international students spend about 50 to 200 dollars per month on personal expenses. So international students average between 800 to about 1000 dollars per month on cost of living.

    There are many factors that are going to go into determining how much it will cost to live in the United States, so location, whether you live in a suburb or a big major city, is going to change the price and then your lifestyle. Do you want to live with roommates, use public transportation and eat at home, or do you want to live by yourself, have your own vehicle and eat out a lot? So I would say that you connect with your school at full scale. We will give you a budgeting sheet to help you determine and plan for how much it will cost for you.
