Notes:
The above estimated expenses for incoming exchange students are based on projected costs for the 2019-2020 academic year and are subject to increases every year.

The estimated housing cost is based on the rate for on-campus housing in Northeast Hall.  Douglas Keen Hall is less expensive and Hilltopper Hall is more expensive.  For information about rates, visit https://www.wku.edu/housing/halls/rates.php.  The cost of off-campus furnished apartments varies and could be more or less than the above estimate.

The $300 Meal Plan Dollars Flex Plan is only required if you do not purchase another larger meal plan, and it can be used at any on-campus dining service.  For meal plan rates, visit https://www.wku.edu/wkurg/oncampus.php.  Exchange students are not required to purchase a meal plan (except the minimum $300 Meal Plan Dollars).  It would be less expensive to buy groceries and cook for yourself, but transportation to shopping centers is limited.

The WKU health insurance is required for all international students.
