Connect with our counselors for profile assesment
American colleges and universities offer three intakes, as opposed to one in Indian universities. A semester may also be used to refer to intakes in various universities. The following are the three intakes offered in the US:
Fall: A popular intake among Indian students, Fall starts in the month of August
Spring: Starts in January; it’s best if you miss the September intake
Summer: Available for limited programs and colleges, the Summer intake usually starts around May.
Which intake to opt for?
Choosing the intake that is right for you can be a little complicated. When selecting a choice, take into account elements such as the program’s accessibility, your academic standing, entrance exam results, acceptance rates, employment prospects, and degree of program preparedness.
An overview of admissions and their length in American universities and colleges is provided below:
From August to December
From January to April
From May to August
While most Indian students prefer the Fall intake, Spring and Summer intakes are equally good for certain programs. We suggest, that if you do not have your documents ready, it’s better to skip the haste and apply for the next intake.
Cost of Studying in USA?
Wondering how much will it cost to study in USA?
For International students, studying abroad can be an expensive endeavor. Nonetheless, a good budget plan might assist you in better managing your living expenses. When estimating the cost of attending school in the US, be sure to take into account costs like housing, food, health insurance, and travel before you leave India.
Your main expense is your tuition.
Public/State and Private universities make up the majority of the university population in the United States. A public or state university has cheaper tuition than a private college or university. Your tuition costs will vary depending on the degree program and university or school you choose. You will require between $8,000 and $55,000 (USD) per year to pay for tuition (indicative).
Most commonly, humanities, arts and education courses are cheaper, while subjects such as medicine and engineering are likely to be more expensive. If you wish to study at postgraduate level, the tuition fees are typically higher and the costs vary depending on the program. As with most other countries, MBA programs are often the most expensive. The average cost for these programs is approx. $35,000 yearly (indicative).
Note: Please be aware that professional programs like law, medicine, dentistry, some design schools, etc. might cost substantially more than an MBA degree. The majority of PhD degrees are fully sponsored through research aid, teaching assistantships, and bursaries.
Where will you be residing? Compute the cost of residence.
International students can live on campus at the majority of US universities. On-campus housing is a very cost-effective choice, but you must apply separately and far in advance to guarantee a spot for yourself.
You can also choose to live off-campus in shared apartments with other Indian students or in a homestay with a local family. You should be willing to adapt to a way of life that is different from India in such circumstances. Do not forget that rental prices vary from city to city.
If you decide to rent an apartment, you will also need to pay for tenant’s insurance as well as additional utility costs like power, internet, and water use (in some areas of housing). Most of the time, institutions assist students in obtaining housing, both on and off campus. The cost of housing in the US varies by region and ranges from $6,000 to $14,000 annually.
You must set aside some cash for emergencies, social engagements, and grocery shopping. It is vital to keep track of your spending when you are a student living abroad to prevent overspending. A single student budget in the US ranges (indicatively) from US$ 10,000 and US$ 25,000 for the academic year, depending on the city they choose to live in. When planning your budget, keep in mind the following typical expenditures:
Average yearly cost*
Books and Stationery
Clothes and footwear
