International Study Center
These international student fees apply to students during the International Year program. After progressing to Oglethorpe University, you will pay international student fees set by the University.
Please visit our How to Pay page to find out how to make a payment and view your fees.
Once you have received your offer of a place at Oglethorpe International Study Center, you are required to pay a deposit to release your I-20 immigration document. This amount will be subtracted from your invoiced tuition fee. Deposits cost between $2,000 and $6,000, depending on your country of residence.
The full balance of your tuition fees must be paid one month before the start date of your first International Study Center course. All fees for second or subsequent courses must be paid two months prior to the start date.
It is important to meet all your payment deadlines. If you miss a deadline or have an outstanding balance, you may be placed on hold and barred from attending classes until all payments are made in full.
