The International Student Services Office looks forward to welcoming you to our campus. We want to make your educational experience at the University of Tulsa both rewarding and enjoyable. Please stop by our office (with your passport, I-94, and other immigration documents) between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, so we may give you the information necessary to enroll in classes and become acquainted with our university. Consider bringing your national dress, musical instruments and/or artifacts with you to the U.S. You will have many opportunities to share them while you are here, including the University of Tulsa’s International Education Week Celebration.
Please see our Exchange Visitor Program Welcome Brochure.
New students must pay a non-refundable $200 deposit before enrolling in classes. Enrollment for fall classes opens in May and continues until classes begin. The International Student Services office will assist you with the enrollment process after we receive your enrollment deposit.

PLEASE NOTE — Payment of tuition and fees is due at the beginning of each semester.
Therefore you should make arrangements to have enough U.S. dollars (in traveler’s checks, not cash) available upon arrival to cover these fees as well as to cover moving-in expenses — taxi, hotel room, housing and utility deposits, food, etc. The university accepts wire transfers and credit card payments. View methods of payment here.
Also, be sure you are thoroughly familiar with your government’s regulations on transferring funds to the United States. If your program will last more than one year, make sure you have sufficient available funds to cover your entire period of study.
PLEASE NOTE — Students With Families
Students who bring dependents should expect to spend an additional $3,000 per year for a spouse and $1,500 per year for each dependent child.
