Program Cost Information Toggle Program Cost Information

Below are specific program cost information handouts per degree level and program of study, and are estimated expenses submitted to the U.S. government as estimated cost of living and studying at Lynn University. This is the amount of funding that must be shown before a form I-20 can be issued by the International Student Services Office and to the U.S. Consulate before the F-1 visa can be issued. You can count any scholarships you are awarded toward the total cost listed on the program cost information for your program.

The costs listed on the Program Cost Information handout for your program are estimates and should not be used to determine the actual costs associated with attending Lynn University.
